Grüner Veltliner Löss 2021
Grüner Veltliner Löss forms the basis of our portfolio. It is sourced from vines growing on the eponymous loess soils. They have been formed over the millennia. We are talking about mineral dust of weathered alpine rocks, crushed under the weight of ice age glaciers. Enormous storms have deposited this dust, in various mineral compositions of clays, lime, quartz and mica, along the Danube and its tributary valleys. The mineral-rich and porous soil characterizes the typical bright fruit and fine spice of this Veltliner.

Fermented in stainless-steel and matured on the lees for 3 months. Bottled at high atmospheric pressure during the waxing moon in March 2022.
