Jutta Ambrositsch

Revision 2017

A wine that behaves like 'a 68 year old smiling flâneur, who drinks Assam tea and loves pear tarts with whipped cream, wearing chequered tweed jacket, born and raised at the foot of the Wiener Reisenberg, who has seen it all and still has a lot left to do.

The wine fermented naturally, and was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
