Rainer Wess, Ried Sandgrube Kremstal, Gruner Vetliner, 2019
Rainer Wess wines have been synonymous with high quality wines from the Kremstal. He started studying wine in the 1980's and working in Bordeaux. He moved back to Austria in the 90's and worked with some of the top wineries in the area before setting up his own winery in 2003. As the name suggests this comes from a single vineyard known for its sandy soils. This is a richer style of Grüner, full of stone fruits and herbs with the signature peppery note that Grüner often gives.
