This is a real 'thinker' of a wine. Die Leidenschaft means "The Passion" - this is an example of Martin's love for using barriques to round out the (sometimes) sharp, linear nature of some of the indigenous varietals of the region. 10 months on lees in 2nd and 3rd use barrels gives this Grüner depth, complexity and age-ability. This is a great example of what Grüner can be if treated seriously - rich and honeyed while sharp and linear - One of our favourites over here.

Kamptal, Austria

Anna and Martin Arndorfer both come from winemaking families, and while they respect their families' traditions, they are busily expanding the possibilities of what Kamptal wine can be. They take a clean but natural approach in the vineyard and cellar, and whatever unusual experiments they take on with the local grapes, they always manage to stick the landing and produce vibrant, exciting, and delicious wines.
