Origin and TerroirThe physiological full ripened Grüner Veltliner grapes were harvested in the vineyard site “Göttweiger Berg” in the southern Kremstal. The soil is dominated by loam and loess. The vineyards are influenced by the warm pannonian climate from the east but also from cool winds which come from the north-east, combined with the special Danube valley climate, this climate mix gives the grapes the highest chance to gain full physiological ripeness and intense flavor.
VinificationHarvest time was the beginning of October. The grapes were handpicked and the whole cluster was pressed. Fermentation was done in stainless steel tanks and temperature controlled. The fruity sparkling base wine was bottled for the second fermentation and was allowed to mature on the lees for 36 months before being disgorged - method champagne.
Tasting notesA sparkling wine with creamy mousseux and yellow fruit, lively acidity and typical spicy peppery Veltliner notes.
Drink and meal recommendationThis Sparkling wine is the perfect Aperitif! It is also a good companion for light dishes and desserts.
