Austrian Glou remixed.
Vienna specializes in a traditional wine called Gemischter Satz, which is a field blend of many different grapes picked on the same day and crushed together for vinification. It’s deceptively difficult, and Jutta Ambrositch’s wine is a rock n’ roll version of that. This wine is a blend of Rotberger, Sankt Laurent, Blauburger, and Merlot coupled with a few white vines that were planted a few decades ago. Who knows what they were, it was the ‘80s after all.
- Jutta Ambrositch started her career as a graphic designer, but needed a change of pace and started making wine; she is a champion of Viennese winemaking traditions.
- Jutta refuses to compromise, and has shirked being a part of the Vienna DAC because she wants to make wine her way: with no additions, enzymes, or sugar and very little sulfur.
- Rotberger is thought to be a cross between Trollinger (Schiava) and Riesling.
- Blauburgunder is the Austrian and Swiss name for Pinot Noir.
- Head banging to Poison.
- Serving this wine chilled.
