Vineyard Grüner Veltliner planted from 1960 to 2012. Riesling planted from 1989 to 2008 at an altitude from 214m to 360 meters. Kamptal is a cool climate region in the North East of Austria; cold winds from the north highlands meet in the Kamptal with the panonian climate. Very high temperature changes from the night and day bring thick skins of the berries wich leads to stronger aromas and vibrant acidity. Microclimates change from hillsides to hillsides and vineyard to vinegards. Altitudes range from 200 to nearly 500 meters. Small valleys between the hills work like channels where cold winds from the northern regions chill down the vineyards during the nights... Strass has a very special microclimate because it has the first south faced slopes near the flat of the Danube. It‘s a unique combination of the very old mother rock of the Bohemian Massive and the particular influence of the Pannonian climate.

Vinification Harvested at the same day and pressed together. 4 hours of maceration for Riesling and no maceration of Grüner co-fermentated with native yeasts mainly in large neutral barrels

Notes Because of our experience that nature is the strongest force, we’d love to work with it. With the knowledge that the soil is the most intelligent part we deal with, we‘ve decided to trust in it. We are convinced that the plants nourish our soil, therefore we let them grow. With these ideas and confidence we don‘t interact in the cellar, which causes that our wines transport the natural taste of the grape. These decisions we make by ourselves and let our personalities speak in our wines. We think that winemakers can be artisans, or even artists. Their work requires creativity, sensitivity and an enormous amount of personality. Everything you would attribute to an artist..... We have made it our task to produce wines that unite origin and passion, wines that arouse curiosity in the wine world across the globe. - martin & anna arndorfer
