Brut Nature 2015 — Grüner Veltliner
A Wine That
gives grower Champagne a real run for its money. This is the Usain Bolt of Austrian Brut Nature sparkling wines. Zesty and smoky on the nose, it's a taut livewire of electric minerality on the palate, with a nutty, croissant dough finish for days. A wine that makes you beam from ear to ear: a cause for celebration.

Where and How?
The work for this wine begins in the vineyard: a single particularly cool parcel of high elevation Grüner Veltliner is dedicated solely to this wine, and every aspect of farming is carried out with sparkling wine at the forefront of Alwin & Stefanie's mind.
Traditional fermentation sparkling wine, and left on the lees in the bottle for three and a half years. Disgorged in June 2019, without dosage.
