Origin and Terrain
The grapes are from the vineyards in the east side of the ‘Göttweiger' mountain. The soil is characterized by its high content of gravel and sand which are responsible for the unique ‘mineral' note found in this Riesling. The combination of the moderate climate and the cool winds from the northern forests has a positive impact on the bouquet and the uniquely intense aroma of this wine. This vineyard is known for its consistent development of healthy and flavourful grapes.
These wine-specific grapes were harvested by the middle of October and with minimal exposure to the elements quickly transported to the cellar. In the cellar the grapes were carefully destemmed and pressed. Special attention was given to the controlled fermentation at a lower temperature curve than usual. The ‘cooler' fermentation preserves the characteristic and unique flavours and aromas of this special wine. After the fermentation the wine was separated and allowed to develop its final character until the end of January before being carefully bottled.
