Martin Arndorfer comes from a long line of wine makers, growing up in the vineyards and cellar of his parents estate. Anna Steininger is the daughter of one of the top and most respected wine makers in Austria, Karl Steininger (http://www.weingut-steininger.at/), quite simply, they are a match made in wine' heaven. Both born with a natural, and it seems in that region, almost genetic understanding and love of the Riesling and Gruner Veltliner grapes.
Strasser Weinerge means the vineyards' in Strass', the fruit for this wine is selected from three of Martins vineyards in the village. The wine is a showcase for the typical characteristics of the variety and vineyard soils.
80% of this wine is fermented with native yeasts in a 20/80 mix of stainless steel and oak. Maceration takes place over 24 hours with partial malolactic fermentation also taking place. The wine is then aged for 7 months in a 50/50 mix of stainless steel and used oak barrels.
Slightly cloudy Gruner with delicious rounded grapey fruit, fleshy palate and hints of white spice on the finish of this white wine.
