This is really cool - variety is Orangetraube, a lost grape found in Austria. Beautiful nose with some funk and citrus, almost a note of orange blossom on the blowback, slight effervescence on the palate. Great summertime wine and completely different.

Star bright straw gold. Aggressive nose of white flowers and white grapefruit rind. Underripe green apple, white tea, white pepper paste on the palate with bracing acidity that's balanced by a wee bit of citrusy sweetness (not a sweet wine by any stretch). At 12.5% abv this could be your Thanksgiving white. It's asking for a rich poultry-led meal, but would work as a summer "sipper" just as well.

Beautiful rare variety, made within the city limits of Vienna, a delicate floral white wine, sort of if Gewurtztraminer or Riesling transformed into snowmelt.

This is alive. Lemon zest, great acidity, minerality, lasting finish, exciting wine to start/end your evening (day!)

Wine that makes me smile. Simple with a touch of sweetness with pineapple and white jasmine notes that linger forever.
