Vorspannhof Mayr is a beautiful white wine gem from Austria. The winery is located in Dross at the northeastern edge of the Kremstal and just west of the Kamptal, and this estate has long enjoyed a fine reputation. In 2006 proprietor/winemaker Silke Mayr began a collaboration with Walter Buchegger, whose family holdings are in Gedersdorf east of Krems, erecting an impressively modern joint cellar and merging production of her family estate with that of Buchegger's. Buchegger is currently taking the leading role in both vineyards and cellars, freeing Mayr to spend more time raising their young children.
The lion's share of the grapes (60%) for Vorspannhof Mayr Gruner Veltliner come from Silke's family's vineyards; the rest are sourced from neighboring growers in Krems and Dross. This is bottled and made by Walter Buchegger in the shared Buchegger - Mayr winery. This fresh, crisp wine has tart, green apple and citrus aromas and flavors on the palate, with tropical fruit notes. The wine has balanced acidity and a pleasing finish.
Enjoy Vorspannhof Mayr Gruner Veltliner with grilled chicken, pan-fried sole, pastas and salads.
