Martin Moser defines this wine as 'the spark', it is the Grüner Veltliner that gets you started with appreciating and wanting to experience with more from his Grüner Veltliners collection.

Per Due comes from several Wolfsgraben's vineyard sites, the Wolf’s Den, is nestled in a scenic area and has a long history. On a high plateau, the vineyards are planted against the slope of a deep depression, a bowl.
Archives from 1284 describe this vineyard as being located against a slope, with a rich loamy soil, growing thriving vines and fruits producing exceptional wines.
The grapes are handpicked and and left to macerate over two hours, pressed, the must is fermented in stainless steel temperature controlled tanks.

Tasting Notes:

Color: Translucent.
Nose: Fruity and flowery notes with spiciness and hints of citrus fruit.
Palate: Very typical for the variety with lots of fruity aromas. The Per Due is crispy, well structured and luscious.
Other: It will go well with Asian food—anything from Vietnamese to Thai to spicy Chinese flavors. You can also try it with seafood or bitter greens and salads. It is versatile and will also complement pork tenderloin, or a dish where the wine‘s acidity can cut through salt and fat, such as smoked ham.
