    Winemaker Notes

    Ample "cool" fruit in the bouquet and expressive citrus and stone fruits and minerals on the palate. The finish is long and crisp.

    Rainer Wess Winery Image
    Rainer Wess founded his own winery in 2003 after many years of diverse experience in the wine trade in both his native Austria and internationally. For example, he was the European sales manager for Mondavi and later the wine maker at a large Wachau winery. From the beginning, Wess’s goal was to produce Grüner Veltliner and Riesling wines that would not only be among the best of the Wachau Valley, but also express his very personal style and philosophy. Rainer Wess’ deep knowledge of the Wachu region and its wine growers enabled him to identify the finest grapes from choicest sites available for purchase at harvest in 2003 and resulted in the immediate success of his project. More sites and grape-sources were added in 2004. Rainer Wess aims to produce the purest, freshest and most elegant wines possible.

    As Austria’s most prestigious wine growing region, the landscape of the Wachau is—not surprisingly—one of its most dramatic. Millions of years ago, the Danube River chiseled its way through the earth, creating steep terraces of decomposed volcanic and metamorphic rock. Harsh Ice Age winds brought deposits of ancient glacial dust and loess to the terrace’s eastern faces. Today these steep surfaces of nutrient-poor and fast draining soil are home to some of Austria’s very best sites for both Grüner Veltliner and Riesling.

    Wachau is small, comprising a mere three percent of Austria’s vine surface and, considering relatively low yields, represents a miniscule proportion of total wine production. Diurnal temperature shifts in Wachau facilitate great balance of sugar and phenolic ripeness in its grapes. At night cold air from the Alps and forests in the northwest displace warm afternoon air, which gets sucked upstream along the Danube.

    Its sites are actually so varied and distinct that more emphasis is going into vineyard-designated offerings even despite grape variety. Grüner Veltliner and Riesling are most prominent, but the region produces Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc (Weissburgunder), Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Zweigelt among other local variants.
