2013 Johann Schwarz "A Lita Weiss Shwoaz" White Blend (1L)

SKU #1299755

34% Scheurebe, 33% Sauvignon Blanc, 33% Chardonnay. The three men involved begin with Johann (Hans) Schwarz, a weighty butcher from Andau who has gained national renown for the super high quality of his meat products. But above all, Schwarz sees himself as a vintner. His great passion is his 12 hectares of vines planted to Chardonnay, Gruner Veltliner and Zweigelt. For many years Schwarz tended his vines under the expert direction of Alois Kracher, one of Austria's greatest vintners and the second man in the story. In 1999 they decided to start making wines from these precious vines with their friend Manfred Krankl (Sine Qua Non) of California winemaking fame. In Schwarz' words, the concept is as follows: "Luis, Manfred and I consider my vineyards as a huge playground. Here, we want to break new ground. We want to experiment and take risks." These are wines of independent personalities, uncompromising in quality, and not fixed on regional traditions.

- Austria is a well-respected wine-growing region in Europe. Yet, even though they make about a third the volume of wine as Germany, not many of these fine bottles make it to the shelves of American wine merchants or restaurants. Lucky for us, their anonymity has translated into incredible value from simple, everyday whites to exquisite dessert wines. Austria shares many grape varieties with Germany—Riesling is king here, too. But the style of Austrian whites is much dryer and more potent. Grüner Veltliner is Austria's second-most-important varietal and makes whites of great versatility and pleasure.
