2020 Klassik Artner

Grapes Grüner Veltliner
Colour White
Origin Austria, Carnuntum
ABV 12.5%

We are delighted to have met the Artner family who make this brilliant, bright Grüner in the easterly region of Carnuntum. Our second vintage, the 2020, is completely delicious. Brighter even than the sensational 2019. More pert, more zip keeping it energetic on the palate. Bright citrus notes upfront are echoed with a gentle pep and lift on the tongue. Delightfully juicy. Yet this is no 'one-trick pony' - it is neatly perfumed too with superb texture. A great new release. Fresh, but far from simple. L&S (May 2021)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.


Winemaking in Carnuntum, half-way between Vienna and Bratislava, dates back to Roman times. The Artner winery can trace its origins back to 1650, when it was part of a more mixed agriculture. Since 1980 the family has focused on wine.

Loess and limestone soils as well as the continental-Pannonian climate with the cooling influence of the Danube to the north offer ideal conditions for viticulture. In the 40 hectares of vineyard they are in the process of organic certification, and work as closely as possible with nature, with cover crops between the rows and even planting trees to attract more insect life.

There is a wide range of wines, with a particular emphasis on red wines, but we have picked out their Grüner as offering exceptional value
