Weingut Gross

Steiermark | Südsteiermark | Ehrenhausen

Johannes Gross is the fifth generation of his family to farm and make wine in Ratsch, on the poetically hilly, verdant edge of Südsteiermark (southern Styria). It’s a place defined by climatic tension between the Alps and the Adriatic with steep, terraced hillsides, a mélange of volcanic and sedimentary soils, and a range of traditional Styrian varieties, foremost sauvignon blanc. The terrain demands intensive handwork; yields are kept very low. In the cellar, Johannes focuses on spontaneous fermentations and traditional vinification methods. The wines are entrancingly aromatic, playful, lively, and keenly defined.

Weingut Gross 2021 "Jakobi" Sauvignon Blanc

For the “Jakobi”, grape selection is done entirely by hand, grapes are fully destemmed and undergo a short maceration before a gentle press cycle. Fermentation is always slow and temperature controlled with native yeasts in stainless steel tanks, where the wine matures for 5 to 6 months on the fine lees.
