Wine Critic Reviews:

This Riesling comes from rocky Eastern facing slopes, and because of the nature of the terroir and the fact that it does not get afternoon sun, the Riesling has a natural higher acidity than Arndorfer's Gruner! He also uses a very old technique of raising his wines in large fuder barrels (barrels slightly larger than the big French tonneaux). With Riesling, this helps temper some of the incredible acid and adds balance. The winemaker writes, ""In Strass we have hills which are full of vineyards but there is also the flat close to the Danube, which is mostly cultivated with grain. We are on the northern border where we can grow wine, because 15 km further north there is no more wine and just grain, because it is too cold so far. But this is for our wines really important. Our region - the Kamptal - is mainly planted with white grapes especially Gruner Veltliner and Riesling. The soil and the climate help the grapes to express their origin." - Martin Arndorfer

Country Austria: Much like Germany, Austria shines when it comes to delicious, compelling whites. Gruner Veltliner is by far the most planted varietal, occupying around 36% of all vineyards in the country. The nature of the varietal creates stellar dry wines, with varying degrees of aging potential. Exploring Austrian wines is an adventure like no other, especially if you're already passionate about white wines. You could spend months and years wandering the countryside looking for the next stunner, and the country would never stop giving. No matter what your preference is, Austrian wines have your needs covered.

Type of Wine Austria White: Few regions offer as much quality and diversity among their whites as Austria. Infused with the essence of varietals such as Gruner Veltliner, Welshriesling, and Pinot Gris (among others), these wines range from very dry to exceptionally sweet and often come with extraordinary aging potential. Give in to their charms, and come out changed forever.
Varietal Riesling: Riesling is a German grape varietal used to produce some of the most heavenly white wine that has ever existed. This has to be tasted to be believed, trust us. If you enjoy your white wine on the sweeter side (as many people do), Riesling wines are an essential addition to your wine cellar. Even if you normally prefer dry, non-sweet wines, you might just get converted by this piece of work.
