Origin and Terroir

The grapes originate from our sustainable managed vineyards in the single vineyard “Süßenberg” situated in the Wachau. Here the typical and fruitful character of the Grüner Veltliners has the potential to develop due to the many hours of sun and the soil, comprised mainly of weathered rock.

Vinification

The grapes were harvested with full physiological ripeness. They were rushed from the slopes to the cellar where they were gently processed. The fermentation was completed in temperature-controlled steel tanks. After the fermentation the wine was racked and allowed to rest on the fine lees until the end of March. During this time the wine was given the chance to develop its characteristic aroma before being bottled.

Tasting notes

Medium yellow-green in the glass, yellow apples and grapefruit in the nose, the palate reveals elegance and flavor of tropical fruits, wild herbs, black pepper and delicate bloomy scents; quite substantial, a convincingly long mineral and spicy finish.

Drink and Meal Recommendation

This full bodied Grüner Veltliner is a great pair to spicy and flavorful dishes. It´s unique elegance and finesse make it the perfect wine for special moments.
