Description

Sustainably Produced Austrian Grüner!

Located in Dross at the northeastern edge of the Kremstal and just west of the Kamptal, the Vorspannhof has long enjoyed a fine reputation. Since 2006, proprietor/winemaker Silke Mayr began a collaboration with Walter Buchegger, whose family holdings are in Gedersdorf east of Krems…. Buchegger is currently taking the leading role in both vineyards and cellars, freeing Mayr to spend more time raising their young children. The soils here are divided among loess, conglomerate and gravel, and some of what gets referred to as “brown earth, in other words,” explains Buchegger, “where traditionally there was grain growing, not vines.” The lion’s share of the grapes (60%) for this wine come from Silke’s family’s vineyards; the rest are sourced from neighboring growers in Krems and Dross. This is bottled and made in the shared Buchegger – Mayr winery. 100% Grüner Veltliner, grown in loess soils. Full-bunch pressing; fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures, aged on the lees in tank until February of the following year. This is a straightforward, spicy Grüner; light in body and fruit-driven, this is a stellar white “table wine,”  able to pair well with just about anything white wine goes with.  Sustainably Produced. 1/L format (love that extra glass!)
