Natural wines – Wine Scouts Organic and biodynamic wines from around the globe. Samples always offered by Pedro who is a font of wine knowledge. This week Pedro says “We’ll open a refreshing white wine from Kamptal in Austria. Martin & Anna Arndorfer Vorgeschmack White is a blend of 80% Gruner Veltliner and 20% Riesling, fermented respectively in steel vats and in large oak casks. Enticing savory notes of apple, citrus fruit and chervil, yeast and white pepper. These are given direction and drive on the spritzy, lively palate by brisk, crisp and fresh acidity. This is Martin’s introduction to Kamptal wines: fresh, mineral and gently aromatic, and incredibly easy drinking. Unfiltered, biodynamic, no added sulphites. Yum!”
