The Diwald family farm has been a pioneer of organic viticulture in Austria since 1980. Second generation winemaker Martin makes exquisite, small-batch wines. Martin interferes as little as possible in the cellar, deploying intuition, patience, humility, and a top-notch T-shirt collection. One of the stars of Austria’s new generation.
A blend (usually made up of 50% Grüner Veltliner, 30% Chardonnay and 20% Weißburgunder) which combines elegance and liveliness.
The Burgundian varieties Chardonnay and Weißburgunder play the elegant roles, while Grüner Veltliner portrays the cheeky, playful character.
The different grape varieties are hand-picked and spontaneously fermented in separate stainless steel tanks. The Chardonnay and Weißburgunder always go thorough malolactic fermentation, while the Grüner Veltliner sometimes does because the wine matures on its fine lees. Natural and full malolactic fermentation was done.
The ChaGrü is always a friendly guy, with some residual sugar and (due to malolactic fermentation) a certain roundness. As a rule, this is an impressively multi-facetted wine which offers a beautiful combination of fruit and spice.
On its own or with Thai spice!
