Details

Gruner Veltliner Strasse Weinberge Arndorfer, organic wine, single vineyard Gruner, textured and complex with depth and minerality. This Gruner is in effect, a vineyard reserve from the best vineyards in Strass. It is based on grapes selected from three vineyards: Strasser Gaisberg, Wechselberg and Hasel, each producing grapes which are totally different in style and taste as a result of their diverse soils and microclimates. Thus the final blend 'reflects the whole village of Strass in all its complexity and variety'. It is a fantastic value example of high quality Gruner with all its texture, minerality and complexity of fruit and firm acidity.

The Arndorfer way is artisan and natural all the way, they place importance on the role of the soil in producing high quality and genuine wines and we can't put it much better than they can: 'Origin for us though is restricted to the vineyard and the vines. The vines soak up the vigour of the soil and their surroundings and give the grapes their unmistakable character based on their origin. Even though we do not feel bound by tradition, we want to emphasise that the influence of the vineyard is crucial to our philosophy. We are convinced that it is impossible to make two wines exactly the same if the grapes come from different vineyards, regions or countries. We think that the most important part of the vineyard is life and balance. Both things are very closely connected with our soils and the work/management we do with the soil. There are lot of little animals and partly very big mycelium in the soil which help the vine to get water and nutrients, but they need their “home” and food. So in our viticulture we try to provide them what they need so they will provide our vines what they need… if we assault our vines (fertilizer and herbicide) we will not have life and balance in our soil.' This is how it should be and the Arndorfer wines show this philosophy in their flavour, both in its qualities and imperfections, it is after all the imperfections in life that make it interesting. They have a fairly extensive list now, including some Pet Nats, and wines made from lesser known grape varieties. Many of their wines are unfiltered, and sulphur and chemicals are avoided, though they don't subscribe to any certification.
