Known for its spicy minerality, firm acidity and a slightly oddball proclivity for managing otherwise ‘difficult’ foods to pair wine with (asparagus, artichoke, etc.), Gruner Veltliner has grown its fan base, mostly in summer, to the point where (so the Blanchards wine team believes) consumer interest will support taking this niche player to the next ‘level’ – in other words, to the terraces of the Traisental Valley, Austria, where the grapes get better sun exposure by day, evenings that cool more gradually, and, eventually, where the finished Gruners seem more grown up. And, given that our customers already appreciate their ‘Hugo’ Gruner, what better supplier to effect the trade-up than tenth-generation Weingut Markus Huber. The Huber ‘estate’ offerings utilize select single vineyard sites, even stricter focus on physiological ripeness and three months’ lees contact to craft more complex wines with finer fruit character and purer pepper. Food match: pan-fried trout.
Technical notes
The must was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with no malolactic. The wine was aged on its lees for three months until bottling.

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".
