Wine Enthusiast:

"Crisp, crunchy apple and pear fruit appears first. This is followed by both more generous apple juice and tarter citrus notes. The midpalate shows concentration and some gentle but determined power. Texture and acidity lend structure to a wine that feels weightier than it is. Wonderfully balanced and dangerously moreish." September 2016

Product Description:

"Made from a classic Viennese field blend (Gemischter Satz) of Gruner Veltliner, Neuburger, Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Welschriesling (and, depending on the vintage, smaller portions of Traminer, Sylvaner, and even Roter Veltliner). Grüner dominates the blend. Farmed organically from the Christ family's vineyards in the 21st district in the northeastern outskirts of Vienna. Fermented and aged entirely in stainless steel." - Distributor

Producer information
"The Christ family claims an unbroken 400-year history of winemaking in Austria. Its current scion is the dynamic and outspoken Rainer Christ who, when he came of age, took over from his father as the 5th generation tending the family’s 9ha of vineyards. After assuming control, Christ oversaw the renovation of his family's winery into a spectacular expression of modern Austrian architecture. Christ's inclinations toward modernity stop at the facade, however. The cellar work remains deliberately primitive - entirely gravity fed, eschewing fining and filtration, and fermenting solely with ambient yeasts - and remains largely executed by Christ himself. Christ farms organically, and embraces some of the principles of biodynamics, in particular, synchronizing some of his actions with the appropriate phase of the moon.
