After an unusually dry winter and early appearance of the new shoots, at the end of April we had a period of frost but fortunately we got off lightly. At the beginning of May the first grape blossoms started to open. Following a wet July accompanied by thunderstorms, some with local hailstorms, the vines made fast progress towards the final ripening stage. The harvest began very early at the finishing of August and after about one month it finished at the beginning of October.

– golden yellow with hints of green
– fruit reminiscent of ripe gooseberries, apples and peaches
– juicy, with elegant fruit on the palate, mineral notes and a melting finish

This wine is paired well with asparagus, onion soup, escargot, and fish dishes, and may also be enjoyed as an aperitif.

Extremely prolonged pressing of the grapes in their entirety, spontaneous fermentation of the unfiltered juice in the large casks (500 l), 10 months maturing in the wood on fine lees with bâtonnage.

East-facing slope at 500 meters above sea level at Oberplanitzing, loamy, chalky gravel with porphyry and weathered granite, providing a prominent mineral character to the site.
