ALC.11.5%/VOL PRODUCT OF AUSTRIA (2020)
The vineyard is located in the East of Austria, Southeast from Vienna. The area is called Burgenland and is a big low-land plain containing also a huge National Park closeby. The climate is continental with warm and dry Summers and cold Winters. Rainfall can be quite little. The average is 450mm per year.
Classical white production in stainless steel. Very reductive style where only top quality grapes are chosen for this wine. Gentle work is the aim to avoid any aroma losses.
Sandy-clay soil, with parts of sandy stone elements.
Normal classical trellising system, allowing optimal sun and air permeation.
An unusual floral note of honeysuckle hovers on the nose alongside mossy greenness. The palate is fresh but ripe, adding a salty vein to the juicy but light body. The finish is vivid and clean.
Wine Enthusiast - ANNE KREBIEHL MW
Aromatics of crunchy apple, green pear, tarragon, and catnip. On the palate, the bracing acidity, lime zest, and juice give way to white pepper, tarragon, scallion, with a chalky mineral saline finish that lingers.
Asian fare, sashimi, sushi, spiced Thai dishes, grilled shrimp, crustaceans, and oysters on the half shell, as well as a myriad of white meats, egg dishes, and light cheeses.
