This dry white is made of the local grape Gruner Veltliner. Juicy stone fruit, lemon and typical white pepper and herbs aromas. There is added complexity of delicious struck-match, flint and vanilla pod. Very fresh palate with notes of lemon curd, gingerbread and peaches. A wine for every palate as it is both complex and absolutely charming.

Nomen est omen – deep sand and Loss soils shape the vineyard Sandgrube. Extensive loess and sand deposits form the basis for the calcareous, well-aerated humic soils. The loess consists of fine dust derived from calcareous rocks mixed with dolomite, feldspar, quartz, mica and clay minerals, that was carried by the wind during the cold stages of the Ice Age when there was little in the way of vegetation cover, and deposited on the foothills of the Alps.

A bright purity of fruit shows itself in the wines of Rainer Wess, who has been making wine from his new, trendy winery on the outskirts of Krems for five vintages now. An impressive building where glass and steel have been interlaid in a traditional structure, echoing the stylishly clean yet authentic wines that he makes. Grapes are largely bought from seven different growers with whom he has been working for ten years, though he does own a lovely vineyard planted in Spitz as well as a newly planted parcel of Pinot Noir which will begin bearing fruit very soon.
