Our Notes: Only a few bottles left! The WildWux project is the culmination of the long friendship between Ilse Maier and Birgit Braunstein that celebrates a shared desire to give back to the land that given them back so much. Above and beyond certifications or seeking out government subsidies, they are taking it upon themselves to bring back endangered species, habitat, and overall biodiversity. Every bottle sold helps build owl nesting tubes, expose old stone walls, build clearance cairns, restore wetlands, and bring meadows back to their primordial state by removing non-native and invasive species. This is the environment and spirit behind the WildWux Grüner Veltliner. Incredibly mineral, herby and concentrated, the 2012 is remarkably alive with acid and clean fruit despite a long hot summer leading into harvest.
