The Wine: This wine is always a highlight in the Arndorfer lineup. This Gemischter Satz or field blend of Grüner Veltliner and Riesling is a wonderful representation of the region. The Grüner brings the fruit, spice and texture on the palate, while the Riesling gives acidity and depth. As with all the Arndorfer wines, texture is a big part and this wine is no exception. Curvaceous with still being spritely. Sebastian Crowther MS

Producer Profile

Both Martin and Anna hail from winemaking families, and luckily caught the wine bug early in life - growing up in the vineyards, helping in the cellar, coming to know the region with an intimacy of an old friend. Through this invaluable experience, along with familial connections and an openness to revive derelict vineyards, they have been able to secure some sites with old vines planted as early as 1958. Time spent at school for winemaking, coupled with stints working internationally, has greatly influenced their style and penchant for experimentation. Working in Italy, Martin gained an appreciation for using oak barrels as means of making age-worthy whites and reds with complexity. Going to school also taught them what they didn’t want to do, and with each vintage, they become more hands-off with their winemaking. Experimenting with skin-maceration, letting the fermentations run at their own pace, and a dedicated focus on their region’s site-specific terror are just a few of the reasons I love importing these wines into Australia.
