Winemaker: Josef Bauer

Josef Bauer and his wife Eva Maria are Familie Bauer, with 17 hectares
of high-elevation vines that are certified organic, because they
believe that cultivating the natural diversity of the landscape best
expresses the terroir in their wines.  ‘Hollötrio’ is 100% Grüner that
gets two degrees of skin contact and a long aging in stainless -
serious work and quality for the price.
Which is why this liter bottle offers up surprisingly sophisticated
refreshment, with lively yellow apple and pineapple notes up front and
zesty citrus, spice, orange peel, and white pepper on the finish The
skin contact accentuates rather than overwhelms Grüner’s classic notes
of white pepper and spice without adding funkiness or excessive tannic
grip. Complex yet clean, this works for both crisp white wine lovers
as well as orange wine fans looking for something on the lighter, less
aggressive side.
