A Wine That
tastes like walking through Michael's lush and green vineyards when all the wildflowers have begun to bloom. Floral and delicate, this is light as a feather and can't help but put you in a good mood. It has a bright, mouthwatering acidity that means it's a brilliant partner for a variety of dishes—our top pick would be ramen or mushroom soup.

Where and How?
All of Michael's vineyards are dotted around his home village Hohenruppersdorf. The soils are mostly alluvian sandstone called 'Löss' by the locals with patches of limestone and granite here and there. All of Michael's grapes are hand harvested and gently pressed and aged in a mix of tanks and Austrian barrels. There is no addition of SO2 throughout the vinification with the occasional microscopic addition at bottling.
The Winemaker: Michael Gindl
If we could choose one grower to highlight the success of permaculture and biodynamic principles, Michael would be shortlisted, if not the winner. His wines have become championed as some of the most exciting natural wines to come out of Austria in recent years, but it's the farm that makes the wines. The cows, the goats, the horses and the plants all add their own energy — and that's what you find in the wine.
