Ein Liter Wien

Jutta Ambrositsch

33

The Ambrositsch wines are all micro-cuvées and they are a delightful way to discover the historic Vienna terroir through the lens of a young and fun artist. While her winemaking style could be called “natural”, with no additions of yeasts, enzymes, or sugar, and only a minimum amount of sulfur, very few of the wines show any of the funky qualities of many wines that share the moniker. Most are made in stainless steel and are classic, with a very special energy to them. Are they renegades? No – rock and roll is a more fitting description. All of their wines are a bit rebellious in that they are made without additions, which gives a lot of vibrancy and juicy flavors, and an unrestrained expression of Vienna’s terroir.

A combination of second press juice from all of the white wine holdings covering the entire four hectares. Because this includes everything from the five-year old vines of Kosmopolit to the old-vine Gruner planted in 1960, it’s considerably more serious than most wine bottled in the liter format.
