From the winery:
Made from 100% Riesling grapes from fine, old vineyards around Langenlois and nearby areas such as Zöbing, Gobelsburg, Schiltern and Mollands. Both young and old vines for the wine grow mainly in gneiss soils. The rest are nurtured in gravel and loess soils (Gobelsburg). The grapes were hand-selected in the middle of October. The Riesling then went through a short maceration where it was whole-bunch pressed for 12 hours. After fermentation in steel tanks the wine was racked and then matured for two months in steel tanks on the fine less.
Straw yellow color. A refreshing Riesling offering aromas of lemon zest, apricot and notes of green apple. The palate reveals delicate fruity juiciness and offers an attractive acidity which gives the wine great finesse and lightness. A classic, refreshing Riesling.
Great with Asian-influenced dishes but also with classic Austrian cuisine (fish). Or just try as a refreshing start or end of a meal!
