Wachau is an Austrian wine growing region that at its eastern most point is about an hour west of Vienna. It stretches about 13km long along the Danube river gorge and is one of the coolest wine growing regions in Austria. It is located between two competing climates; warm Pannonian winds from the east collide with colder Atlantic/Alpine winds insulted by the surrounding wilderness. Steeply terraced vineyards consist mostly of Gfohler Gneiss (orthgneiss) and other ancient igneous/metamorphic rock beds. It’s the perfect condition for high acid, mineral driven, uniquely expressive white wines. The Gruner is typically found lower on the slopes on more loess soils. Aged 5 months in Stainless Steel.
