Ingrid Groiss Gruner Veltliner 'In der Schablau' Weinviertel Reserve 2015
Located in Weinviertel, Austria’s oldest wine growing district, Ingrid Groiss cultivates Gruner Veltliner sustainably and traditionally, carrying on her family’s winemaking traditions. Minimal technology is used during vinification, allowing terroir to show its best. Her 2015 ‘In der Schablau’ Reserve shows notes of white pepper and yellow fruit, full of zesty minerality and crisp acidity.
The land of Schwartzenegger and strudel delivers ethereal, electric whites along the Danube, but Grüner and Riesling aren't the whole story; its savory, mineral, lightweight reds can be revelatory.
