Ebner-Ebenauer

Gruner Veltliner – 2019

Region: Austria - Weinviertel

Ebner-Ebenauer

Deep in a four hundred year old cellar, a quiet, studious man weighs careful decisions to create exquisite wines from each of the special parcels in the Weinviertel. He asks his accomplished, exuberant wife to join him in crafting the perfect blends that reflect their passionate partnership.

Once upon a time…this is how fairy tales usually begin. But sometimes real life is a fairy tale, and that is the case for Marion and Manfred Ebner-Ebenauer. While the Ebner-Ebenauer label was born in 2007, when the two winemakers decided to share their lives, the history of winemaking in Manfred’s family stretches back fourteen generations. Today Ebner-Ebenauer is a mixture of old and new. The 400 year old cellar and modern style of the careful winery renovation. Traditional winemaking, gravity fed, gentle pressing. Using new methods when appropriate. “Respect the traditions but change if not useful.”

Notes of green pear peel and the riper flesh of yellow pear combine into a nose of ripe freshness. The palate then brims with vivid lemon freshness that tingles with zesty intensity on the slender, bright, brisk palate. This is light but fresh, enlivening and invigorating in its weightlessness.
