Frug Gruner Veltliner 2020 (Burgenland, Austria)
Frug (pronounced “froog”) is a shake-your-hips kind of dance popular in the 1960s, lively like good natural wine. Josef and Pia Wurzinger took over the estate from his parents in 1991, thus beginning their gradual transition to a fully organic operation and eventually getting certified organic in 2014.
This Grüner Veltliner goes through spontaneous fermentation, and is then bottled unfined and unfiltered in 1L bottles, the regions traditional packaging for fun and drinkable Austrian wines. Notes of peaches, apricots, apples, and a slight herbaceousness on the finish, amplified by a pleasant acidity. Gluggable on its own but also incredibly food friendly!
