Location & harvest
The "Göttweiger Berg“ – as it has been known since 1083 A.D. – strongly benefits from the different microclimatic conditions. Here, the vegetation breathes the cool, soft and spicy air from the Dunkelsteiner Woods as well as the warm Pannonian air – all balanced with the natural humidity of the Danube region. There also are several geological differences, ranging from gravel and sand, and loess and loam, to weathered primary rock – all of which bring, along with the various grape varieties, a plethora of characteristics to the wines. This is an ideal site for Grüner Veltliner and Riesling. The Göttweiger Berg yields medium-bodied wines with in average of 12,5% vol. alcohol. They are matured in steel tanks.
Juicy yellow apple aromas and fine tobacco nuances. The palate shows structure and finesse, with green apple and a mineral undertone. Solid ageing potential.
Ageing potential: This wine could be enjoyed within three years of the harvest - but the potential actually increases after 4-6 years.
