Origin and Terroir The grapes originate from the single vineyard “Gottschelle”. First mentioned as “Gotschali” in 1341, it is situated at the foot of the Göttweiger Berg. The south-facing old Danube terrace has a mighty loess layer with high lime content. The vines of this vineyards are approximately 50 to 60 years old and produce very characteristic Veltliner grapes. The combination of the well-suited soil and the micro climate have a strong contribute to the development of this Grüner Veltliner. Vinification The perfectly matured Veltliner grapes were picked at the end of the harvest, rushed to the cellar, destemmed and pressed after a very short maceration time.  Fermentation was completed in a temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. By the middle of January the wine was racked and allowed to develop its full aroma on the fine lees before being bottled. Tasting notes Medium yellow-green in the glass, yellow apples in the nose, the palate reveals elegance and flavor of tropical fruits, wild herbs, black pepper and delicate honey notes; quite substantial, a convincingly long mineral and spicy finish. Drink and Meal Recommendation The perfect companion for spicy and flavor full dishes as well as to a variety of deserts. Even without food pairing, this wine is well suited for any special occasion.
