A classic example of this varietal. Bright aromas of Granny Smith apples and clean citrus fruit dominate the nose of this wine. On the palate, the wine possesses crisp acidity as well as clean, citrus flavors that keep you coming back for more.
Located in the Grossriedenthal area of the Wagram region, Josef Bauer, alongside his wife Eva Maria, comprise the extraordinary winemakers of Weingut Familie Bauer. The Bauers believe in creating wines of the best quality by being conscientious of the environment by employing green covering of existing flora that cultivates the natural diversity of landscape and hence reflects the terroir found in their wines.
Harvest from all around Grossriedenthal, the vines age around 15-40 years of age and are planted on 3.5ha of loess which is rich in fossils. The grapes are hand-harvested the first two weeks of October, undergoes intensive vineyard sorting and then they’re left in the small boxes for 3-6 hours so that natural crushing and fermentation begins, and then with total fermentation in stainless steel lasting 2-8 weeks. The wine spends its entire time on the lees until end of January with no stirring. The wine is then aged in stainless steel for 5 months and filtered.
Pairs well with pork, vegetarian and poultry dishes, lean fish, and cured meat.
