Groszer Wein, Csaterberg

Groszer Wein Csaterberg, an Austrian wine

Csaterberg is a hill - two hills to be exact, in southern Burgenland, a low-lying region of Austrian on the Pannonian plain near the Hungarian border.

If you need more of a back-story to this wine, it is a blend of Welschriesling, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc grown on slate and freshwater opal then fermented in a mixture of oak and stainless steel.
For me, however, it is characteristically Austrian and reminds me of how I first fell in love with the wines of this country; full-yet-fresh; pure, clean and adept; it is at once both characterful and elegantly complex.

Rather like the Austrians themselves.

Groszer Wein, Csaterberg 2015, Südburgenland toasty with ripe citrus; fresh pineapple and melon fruit with sweet spice and a mineral backbone. Full, pure and long.

Very Good.

A versatile food wine, match with roast fowl, creamy pasta or cheeses.

The wine is imported into the UK by Newcomer Wines.
