Austrian vintner Ludwig Neumayer, the
producer of this wine, brought new attention
to the country’s underrated Traisental region.
What You Need To Know
Grüner Veltliner is Austria’s signature
grape, a zesty, lightly herbaceous white variety that’s responsible
for some of the world’s most food-friendly wines. This example
comes from winemaker Ludwig Neumayer, who’s credited with
almost single-handedly bringing the country’s Traisental region
to prominence. Neumayer’s 22 acres lie on the right bank of the
Traisen river, where the soils are extremely chalky. Planted mainly
in rocky, steep terraces and farmed by hand, his vineyards
produce fruit with a racy minerality that’s usually associated

Aromatic peach, lemon
