Product Description

The Schloss Maissau is a small passion project of the Gruber family. They had the opportunity to manage, farm and make wine from the very old vineyards next to the historic 13th century Schloss Maissau castle. In fact, they have documents from the year 1114 that reference these vineyards. In 2006, the current caretaker of the castle approached the family to revitalize the production of the wines from the castle's grounds. It took seven years to get the chemicals out of the ground, three more to apply for organic status, and as of this 2016 vintage, the vineyards are certified organic. Total production for the winery is only 3500 cases.

The 2017 Schloss Maissau Gruner Veltliner is a crisp, dry white wine that offers notes of yellow apple, fresh herbs, arugula, white pepper, and fine minerality. Lees aging adds a bit of weight and slight richness to the wine without sacrificing the refreshing acidity.
