Origin and TerroirThe physiological full ripened Riesling 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 flavour.
VinificationThe Riesling grapes were handpicked in the beginning of October. The whole cluster was pressed and fermentation was completed in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The fruity sparkling base wine was bottled for the second fermentation and was matured on the lees for 36 months before being disgorged - method champagne.
Tasting notesA sparkling wine with pleasantly creamy perlage and yellow fruit melt, which underline its lively acidity and the typical stone fruit aromas.
Drink and Meal RecommendationThis Sparkling wine is the perfect Aperitif! It is also a good companion for light dishes and desserts.
