Origin and Terroir

The grapes for this blend originate from our sustainable managed vineyards around the Göttweiger Berg in the southern Kremstal. The hills surrounding the Göttweiger Berg provide diverse soil and micro-climatic conditions. With its mixture of deep “Löss” and chalky weathered rock, the vineyard area Göttweiger Berg of the southern Kremstal region offers ideal conditions for fruity, variety specific wines.

Vinification

The varieties blended in the Cuveé Diana are Zweigelt, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The grapes were harvested in October. The grape material was destemmed and a classic must fermentation started. After the fermentation was completed and the wine was stored and matured in small oak barrels for 16 month.
