Origin and Terroir The grapes are from the single vineyard ‘Eichbühel’. Eichbühel is our highest situated vineyard site 330m above sea level. The cooler climate and the chalky soil support the fruit development of Grüner Veltliner and enable the grape to mature longer on the vine. Vinification After a careful selection only the best grapes were harvested by the end of October for this ‘Grüner Veltliner Eichbühel’. These fully matured, flavour intense grapes were gentle processed after a short maceration time. The steel tank fermentation was completed in a temperature controlled environment. By the middle of January the wine was racked to barrique barrels were it was allowed to mature on its fine lees. Tasting notes Medium yellow-green in the glass, gentle tobacco notes in the nose, the palate reveals elegance and flavour of honeydew, wild herbs, black pepper and delicate honey notes; quite substantial, a convincingly long mineral and exciting finish. Drink and meal recommendation Stored best at 10° C Aging potential: 15-20 years The perfect companion for spicy and flavour rich dishes as well as a variety of deserts. Without a food pairing, this wine is well suited for any special occasion.
