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 2020 Gamlitzer Gelber Muskateller

This gelber muskateller hails from the Gross's neighboring village of Gamlitz where the soils are comprised of gravel and sand, producing highly aromatic and easy drinking wines. The vines range from 10-30 years old and all grapes are harvested by hand. The grapes are briefly macerated before undergoing a gentle press cycle. Spontaneous fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks where the wine remains and matures for 12 months on the full lees.
