Our Notes: While Carnuntum is more widely known for red wines, some of the oldest vines are in fact white. What sets this wine apart is not only the blend of Weissburgunder (60%), Grüner Veltliner (30%) and Welschriesling (10%), but that it’s aged in a combination of stainless steel, oak and amphora. The Weissburgunder gives the weight and fruit, the GV the acidity and spice, and the Welschriesling adds bright aromatics. The stainless steal keeps things fresh, the barrel gives some nutty oxidative notes, and the amphora a cat’s tongue like texture. This wine is a crazy balancing act of grapes and vessels that is simply stated as “white” on the label. A great pairing wine and yet not overworked or overthought for drinking a bottle on its’ own.
