    Winemaker Notes

    This wine is the quintessence of a typical Grüner Veltliner of our wine growing region. Delicate peppery aroma with refreshing citrus notes on the pallet, spicy, charming and light, clear pepperiness.

    After having split the parental winery in 1992 between sister Birgit and Michaela Haas, she is in charge of the original winery located in Straß together with her husband Erich. A lot has been done ever since. As the old cellar was too small, it needed to be replaced by a completely new one. What had been created is a three floor cellar construction, where the concept of the free fall could be very well used; the old, existing wooden barrel cellar was cleverly integrated.

    For Michaela and Erich, the origin principle is held in high esteem, meaning that the foundation for their high quality wines is to be found already in the vineyards. The proper soil for each grape variety to benefit from the regional strengths. Thus, dense wines rich in finesse with a typical grape variety character can grow. Whereas, in the first years, the "Grüner Veltliner" was the centre of attention, the winegrowers managed to make themselves an internationally renowned name by their Riesling wines from the Gaisberg and the Heiligenstein as well as the Grauburgunder and Chardonnay Barrique wines. Being an economist by profession, Michaela Haas is responsible for the marketing activities.

    Appreciated for superior wines made from indigenous varieties, Austria should be on the radar of any curious wine drinker. A rather cool and dry wine growing region, this country produces wine that is quintessentially European in style: food-friendly with racy acidity, moderate alcohol and fresh fruit flavors.

    Austria’s viticultural history is rich and vast, dating back to Celtic tribes with first written record of winemaking starting with the Romans. But the 20th century brought Austria a series of winemaking obstacles, namely the plunder of both world wars, as well as its own self-imposed quality breach. In the mid 1980s, after a handful of shameless vintners were found to have added diethylene glycol (a toxic substance) to their sweet wines to imitate the unctuous qualities imparted by botrytis, Austria’s credibility as a wine-producing country was compromised. While no one was harmed, the incident forced the country to rebound and recover stronger than ever. By the 1990s, Austria was back on the playing field with exports and today is prized globally for its quality standards and dedication to purity and excellence.

    Grüner Veltliner, known for its racy acidity and herbal, peppery aromatics, is Austria's most important white variety, comprising nearly a third of Austrian plantings. Riesling in Austria is high in quality but not quantity, planted on less than 5% of the country’s vineyard land. Austrian Rieslings are almost always dry and are full of bright citrus flavors and good acidity. Red varietal wines include the tart and peppery Zweigelt, spicy and dense Blaufränkisch and juicy Saint Laurent. These red varieties are also sometimes blended.

    Fun to say and delightfully easy to drink, Grüner Veltliner is indigenous to Austria, where it has long maintained its status as the nation’s most important and most planted white grape. Somm Secret—About 75% of the world’s Grüner Veltliner comes from Austria but the variety is gaining ground in other countries, namely Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and the United States.
