Tasting Notes

Herbal, citrus, fennel and pear notes emerge on the nose. Medium weight with pear and anise flavors and rounded mouthfeel yet with a zesty lift. This is appealing and attractive.

Grüner is one the wines that “solves” pairing difficult foods, notably asparagus and artichokes.  This will also pair well with most Asian cuisines—Indian, Indonesian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai.  Composed salads and leafy greens are fine partners, as beans and lentils.  This wine is a good counterbalance to salty meats like ham, sausage, salumi, charcuterie, and wurst, and a classic Wiener schnitzel is a match made in heaven.

 

Wolfgang Aigner represents the ninth generation to produce wines in this family winery.

Kremser Sandgrube was first mentioned in archives in AD 1001. It comprises the sloping, terraced sites which extend east from the town center to Rohrendorf. These 351 hectares are part of the best known white wine area in Austria, which was known even in medieval times, for growing especially ample and spicy Gruner Veltliner.
