Gruner Veltliner Poysdorf – 2021

Region: Austria - Weinviertel


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.”

Winemaker's Notes

The Weinviertel identifies itself first and foremost with the Grüner Veltliner! This fruit forward and spicy representative is the only Veltliner from our estate that is sourced from more than one vineyard – all others are single-site wines. These warm loess soils provide the perfect basis for this authenticly spicy, peppery and finely mineral-toned Grüner Veltliner, enhancing the delicate nature of the wine. Crisp pear aromas. Juicy apples in the mouth with subtle spicy mineral notes, white pepper, and bright acidity on the finish.

Pair with fish, baked dishes, summer salads and curd cheese.
