Barbara Öhlzelt is another in Austria's Kamptal region who, along with Arndorfer and Jurtschitsch, are going against the grain, making lighter, fresher wines instead of the more powerful, rich style that has been Kamptal's claim to fame. Barbara's first vintage was 2004 and she has been unassumingly making some of the most precise, crisply detailed wines in the area with just seven hectares of vines.
The 'Kitz' Gemischter Satz is a classic Austrian field blend that includes Rivaner, Grüner Veltliner, Gelber Muskateller, and Weissburgunder. It's invigorating and vivid, with a grassy, citrusy cut. Underripe pear notes and a zesty, mineral finish make this the perfect 'crisp, dry white.' It will give you a nice jolt of Vitamin C on a cold day and cool you down during the most sweltering heat wave. Jonathan Kemp
