The wine: Winemaker Jutta Ambrositsch has been crafting wine under her own name since 2002 out of Vienna, Austria after her friend and mentor, Fritz Wieninger, donated a vineyard on the prestigious hills of Nussberg. Jutta has since expanded he acreage, but to date all of her vineyards remain on the Nussberg – the best grape-growing site in the region.
“What I like in the wine is the balance between the salty minerality, the ripeness enhanced by a touch of residual sugar and the counterpoint of the fresh, intense acidity. I think it is a great and unique expression of the Riesling – with the precision you expect, but more full bodied. I really enjoy her wines and her vision of vine growing and wine making. I really think biodynamic viticulture enhances a sense of the place.” – Pascaline Lepeltier
