Sepp Moser Classic Gruner Veltliner (750ml)
The Moser family is one of Austria’s viticultural dynasties. In 1848, Anton Moser started his own wine estate in the village of Rohrendorf. The most famous descendant of the family is the viticulture pioneer Dr. Lenz Moser who, in the 1950’s, developed the high training system for vines.
Sepp Moser founded today’s estate in 1987 with vineyards in the Austrian wine-growing areas Kremstal and Neusiedlersee. He ambitiously dedicated himself to creating exquisite wines full of character from best sites.
Sepp’s son Nikolaus took over the estate in 2000- quickly becoming one of the first wine-growers in Austria to convert his vineyards to biodynamics.

The Classic range from Sepp Moser is for uncomplicated enjoyment. The majority of the Gruner Veltliner grapes for this dry white were grown on the steep, rocky terraces of Rohrendorf in Kremstal and the surrounding area. The löss soil on these steep terraces is rich in lime and sediments from the last ice age, and can be up to 35 metres thick! Vines are trained on high trellises, with grapes organically produced and hand harvested. Grapes are destemmed and crushed and the must left to settle for 3-4 hours before pressing. Fermented and aged in stainless steel. Delicate aromas of pear, kiwi, apricot and white spice.
On the palate stone fruit flavours and white pepper lead to a gently textured, mineral and citrus finish.
