MA Arndorfer, Riesling Mitges 2017
Martin & Anna Arndorfer
A super new vintage with delicious ripe citrus fruit but beautifully balanced with zippy acidity and great depth off-dry but a really satisfying drink for riesling lovers.
Both Martin and Anna hail from winemaking families, and luckily caught the wine bug early in life--growing up in the vineyards, helping in the cellar, coming to know the region with an intimacy of an old friend. Through this invaluable experience, along with familial connections and an openness to revive derelict vineyards, they have been able to secure some sites with old vines planted as early as 1958. Time spent at school for winemaking, coupled with stints working internationally, has greatly influenced their style and penchant for experimentation. Working in Italy, Martin gained an appreciation for using oak barrels as means of making age-worthy whites and reds with complexity. Going to school also taught them what they didn�t want to do, and with each vintage, they become more hands-off with their winemaking. Experimenting with skin-maceration, letting the fermentations run at their own pace, and a dedicated focus on their region�s site-specific terror are just a few of the reasons I�m excited to keep trying their wines whenever possible.
