Fantastic value Austrian Gruner Veltliner from Ingrid Groiss which should really be savoured but is far too drinkable. From Weinviertel this is a zippy, crisp, refreshing and aromatic wine with apple blossom, pear and quince flavours and wrapped around a lovely citric core. Beautifully pure on the finish and showing those characteristic white pepper and herbal notes.
Describing herself as passionate, emotional and determined pretty much says it all about Ingrid and are the sort of character traits I’d expect to find in a young wine maker who modernised their parent’s winery. Having lived the corporate life with Coca-Cola in her younger years Ingrid returned to her wine making roots in Weinviertel and set about producing fantastic wines from the vineyards her gran had planted some 50 years ago. Ingrid’s wine have a great purity to them and the complexity off her Gruner Veltliners is quite amazing. The wines are all certified organic since the 2019 vintage and they get better with every vintage. It’s a real pleasure to work with Ingrid’s wines.
