Warnung, Whitey Weisswein
It's fresh, but grounded by some of the grapes spending two weeks on skins. This white feels slightly reminiscent of sake, with a hint of saltiness and the usual white fruit and floral notes from the Grüner.
Grapes: Müller Thurgau, Welschriesling, Grüner Veltliner
Place: Kamptal, Austria
This family-owned winery is located in the Kamptal Valley region of Austria. Winemaker Matthias Warning spent time with Testalonga's Craig Hawkins in Swartland in 2010 at the Lammershoek winery, where he was inspired by the conversion to organic viticulture. His 10ha estate is made up of mainly old and well adapted vines of Grüner Veltliner, Riesling and Zweigelt. All wines are fermented spontaneously, unfiltered and minimal sulphur is added to them prior to bottling.
