Chosen for their specific microclimate and meagre primary rock soils, the vineyard sites were carefully hand-picked from steeply terraced vineyards throughout the Wachau valley. It exhibits a very typical and consistent style of Grüner Veltliner from Wachau characterized by fresh fruit and a pronounced minerality.
The vines are cultivated in the classical Lenz Moser-trellis system with an average yield of 8.000 kg/ha. The grapes were handpicked between the end of September and beginning of October. Our modern grape reception system enables us to select only 100% healthy grape material. Gentle pressing, sedimentation overnight, temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel define the vinification process. A moderate reductive treatment guarantees a fresh and fruity, yet well-structured wine.
Bright yellow-green in colour, this wine offers distinctive aromas of green apple, white pepper, hints of mango, balanced with delicate herbal notes. This Federspiel is a traditional example of Grüner Veltliner with its medium-body crisp acidity, juicy fruits and white spice on the finish. TA 6.5; RS 1.4 g/L; Alcohol 12.5%;
