A year after the red original won everybody’s heart, Christian’s flock of lit Burgenland birds arrives also in white – or rather orange? Label art by Erró.
Grapes: blend of white grapes with Gruner Veltliner
Vineyard: limestone, quartz, schist
Making of: the grapes are hand-picked. The Gruner gets a short maceration, gently pressed and then blended with directly-pressed white field blend. Aged in large wooden vats for about a year. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, zero sulfur added.
Personality: incredibly fresh and pure, with laser-sharp acidity that will keep you going during an ongoing debate whether it’s white, orange, or who cares when it’s this good?
