Grüner Veltliner Ried Eichbühel Kremstal Reserve 2018

Origin and Terroir

The grapes originate from the single vineyard Eichbühel, which is our highest vineyard site 330 m above sea level. The cooler climate and the chalky soil support the fruity development of Grüner Veltliner and enable the grape to mature longer on the vine.

Vinification

After a selection in the vineyard only the best grapes were harvested. These fully matured, flavor intense grapes were gentle processed after a short maceration time. The fermentation was completed temperature-controlled steel tanks. At the end of the fermentation the wine was racked into 500l oak barrels where it was allowed to mature on its fine lees.
