Grüner Veltliner
Muskateller

Where and How?

This is a collaboration between Stefanie and Alwin Jurtschitsch and Anna and Martin Arndorfer. Both were inspired and excited by the notion of making natural sparkling wines, so joined forces to do so together. Since 2014, they have produced several editions each year from their organic vineyards.

This is direct press Grüner Veltliner (approximately 75%), with 20% Muskateller juice with 5% Muskateller grapes, all fermented together. the wine finished fermenting in bottle, hence giving bubbles à la pét-nat style. Unfined, unfiltered, with a teeny touch of sulfites at disgorgement.

The Winemaker: Fuchs & Hase

"In 2012, when we were making a Grüner Brut Nature, Stefanie went to the barrel during fermentation and just bottled 300 wines during fermentation, and closed them with a crown crap - just to see if the natural first fermentation would succeed in the bottle. It was one of hundreds of trials, we have a room for trials that’s filled with bottles! We put it there and there was too much to do, so we never checked them. Two years later, I really needed to get away from Austria - it can be a bit narrow at times - I needed some inspiration. So, I called my friend James Erskine in the Adelaide Hills and asked him, Hey, I want to buy a ticket and come to you to help for the harvest.” He said sure thing, and so a week later I was in the Adelaide Hills and harvest started. One day, he said we need to bottle pét-nat. I was like… okay, interesting. Tell me more. I had honestly never heard of pét-nat before! I rang Stefanie and said, hey, guess what we did today? We did petnat! Stephanie had also never heard about it, but we realised - this is the same thing we did two years ago. So, I asked her to go and find one of those bottles and to open it." - Alwin Jurtschitsch
