Located in the Wachau, Rainer Wess founded his own winery. The first production year was 2003. As harvest approaches, usually by early October and running through November, Wess ensures that the grapes have an optimal balance of physiological ripeness and acidity, with no botrytis. The fruit is picked by hand and brought to the winery in small plastic crates. This Gruner Veltliner is pale yellow colour with green tints, aromas of pearskin, green plum and apricot, but the palate is crisp, mineral and mouthcoating with a touch of white pepper and some smokiness on the finish. Gruners are always good food wines. Try this one with trout, salmon and sea food risottos.
