Andert-Wein 'Anadjucka' Grüner Veltliner Neusiedlersee, Austria 2018


The tiny town of Pamhagen lies in the eastern reaches of Neusiedlersee, Austria, just meters from the Hungarian Border. Brothers, Erich and Michael Andert operate the liveliest of properties in this village. They've got geese, ducks, chickens and sheep to help in the vineyards. They farm vineyards, geek out over herbs, cure meats and ferment veggies. The have been Demeter certified since 2003. They share their knowledge of farming and their endearing hospitality to everyone from the random wine nerd to the curious kids of the Vienna school district. All wines are hand harvested, fermented in open vats and aged in old oak barrels underground. Low sulfur additions. 

The name 'Anadjucka' comes from a dialect that pulls from their Hungarian heritage and essentially translates to their family farm. The wine spends 10 days on the skins. It is wildly energetic, varietally correct and a full on expression of the land. Park wine add cured meat and probably a deli sando for good measure.
