The Gritsch Mauritiushof winery is located in the town of Spitz, on the Danube, in the UNESCO World Heritage Wachau region of Austria. The estate was built in the 13th century and has an extensive winemaking tradition that dates back to its inception. Steeped in history, the property is now owned by the Gritsch family, who have been making wine there for over 200 years. Winemaker Franz Joseph Gritsch represents the seventh generation. The vineyards are steeply terraced, and therefore most of the work—from pruning to harvesting—must be done by hand.

100% Grüner Veltliner from Gritsch’s Kirchpoint Vineyard, the grapes were carefully hand-picked and sorted. Gentle pressing, vinification in a temperature controlled, stainless-steel tank, and aging on fine lees followed. The result is a light and fresh white wine, with ripe citrus aromas punctuated by notes of chalky minerality.

The palate is bright and full of flavors of pineapple, nectarine and lemon pith. The mouthwatering acidity is pleasantly balanced with a cool, refreshing minerality and a hint of spice on the finely tapered finish. The Federspiel (literally "feather game") designation refers to the alcohol content, and delineates a wine with an 11.5–12.5% ABV.
