The Moser family has produced highly regarded Austrian wines from estate vineyards in the Rohrendorf, the Kremstal, and the Apetlon at Lake Neusiedl appellations since 1848. Their contribution to modern viticulture is similarly noteworthy. In the 1950s Dr. Lenz Moser developed his eponymous growing method which trains the vines to grow higher, making work in the vineyard much easier. His twin sons, Laurenz and Sepp took over the estate in the second half of the 20th century. The adulterated wine scandal in the mid-1980s decimated Austria’s export market - these lost revenues led to the decline and eventual sale of the winery. As a result, in 1987, Sepp Moser founded a new estate Weingut Sepp Moser. Sepp reduced the number of vineyards in Rohrendorf and in Apetlon, keeping only the best sites and dedicating himself to creating expressive wines from total of 82 acres of vineyards. In 1991, Nikolaus began assisting his father and in 2000 assumed complete responsibility of the estate. All of his wines are organic and/or Demeter certified biodynamic with an emphasis on authenticity and quality.

Tasting notes
A yellow green color with aromas of fresh apple and citrus, this crowd pleasing, mediumbodied white finishes with pleasing notes of minerals and spice.

Review
With warm weather approaching, a good all purpose white is in great demand. Grüner Veltliner is one of the better choices to accompany the lighter foods of spring and summer and makes a refreshing choice for appetizers or as an aperitif.

Technical notes
The vineyards are planted on deep layers of rich limestone and loess soils. After destemming and gentle crushing the must fermented in stainless steel.
