Somewhat usual for Grüner Veltliner, this wine is open and fragrant, with floral, citrus and lemon grass aromas. Good minerality provided by soil - a mix of loam and limestone, makes this wine fresh, almost vibrant. Bright acidity is well balanced with a clean citrus fruit. A lovely match with aromatic Thai, Chinese or Indian cuisine this Grüner Veltliner is very versatile with all poultry and seafood offerings and excellent on its own as an aperitif.
Wine maker notes
The grapes are picked at optimum ripeness, crushed and cooled down, then left on the skin for about 6 hours. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks at 19 °Centigrades. Left on the lees for three month also in stainless steel tanks.

Food pairing
The ideal wine for seafood, white meat and light dishes like salads, also very pleasant as a refreshing summer wine on a hot day.

Producer
At the tender age of twenty-three, Markus Huber took over the task of making wine at his family’s winery in the Traisental region of Austria. The Huber family has been making wine from their land for five generations, but has owned it since 1778, which equates into nine generations. The first four generations practiced coopering. Markus and his father, Anton share the efforts of viticulture, while it is now all Markus’s hand in the cellar. Wines from Austria named Markus Huber the young winemaker of the year 2002. Also in Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, edition 123 it is written that "25-year old Huber is one of the most promising new talents in the Austrian wine industry".
