Klaus Wittauer
The Wines of Austria!!

Steininger Gruner Veltliner Sekt $29.99
Yellow gold, bouquet of spiciness, tricky and noble,
perfect bubbling pleasure with aromas of green apple, citrus, blossoms and pepper.
Rich and well balanced with fruit and enchanting grace.

Hillinger Pinot Gris $13.99
Another fine vintage for this intensely flavored, rich and zesty, take on Pinot Gris.
It's jam-packed with aromas and flavors of spiced pear, golden apple, and ginger and wonderfully rich. 
The spice and ginger notes flow through to the long and mouthwatering finish. 
Fresh and flavorful enough to sip on a warm evening, but built to shine at table all year long!

Tegernseerhof Hohereck Gruner Veltliner $44.99
Grown on a patchwork of different soils between the Danube and the Riesling terraces,
Dürnstein's (formerly Frauenweingarten) alluvial river sands bring bright notes of spice, honeysuckle, and white pepper to the forefront. The piercingly mineral nose is further enhanced by notes of dried yellow and green grasses, white radish, while the deep, glycerol back palate is characterized by Indian spices and a slight minty, lime finish. 

Hillingen Blaufrankisch $16.99
Intensive ruby-red color with a purple rim, in the nose typical spice, blueberry,  blackberry, and cinnamon. 
This impression is prolonged on the palate, supported by a firm body and grippy tannins. 
The long spicy finish is the perfect ending.

Bauer "Artist" Blaufrankisch $54.99
Dark ruby with nearly opaque core, violet highlights and a thin, transparent rim.
Dark berry fruit, black berry jam and dark minerals.
A juicy, sweetly extracted core is elegantly wrapped in a harmonious veil of fine- grained tannin.
The long finish has textures of dark fruit and notes of dark chocolate and cocoa.
Potential for further development as this wine will continue to mature from now until 2022.
