Stocked in temperature controlled warehouse
So many spicy nuances and an entire spectrum of stone-fruit aromas, make this dry Riesling masterpiece extremely attractive. Yet, beneath these aromas lies a deep chasm that will suck you in if you gaze into it. Still quite firm and tight at the long finish. Drink or hold.

PRODUCER

Before it was tamed, the Mentalbach carried sand, rubble and rocks between Höhereck and Loibenberg into the Danube valley after heavy rainfall. In contrast to the smoothly flowing waters of the Danube, the sediments from torrents are coarse-grained and unsorted. Compared to the terrace locations with Gföhl gneiss, the soils in the Schütt area are sandier and stonier, while also very deep. The vines sit at 240m on pure gneiss-based primary rock, and the vineyard produces very focused, straight and powerful wines with pure minerality. Vine age ranges from five to 50 years, with an average of 25 years. Selectively hand harvested. Gently airbag pressed as whole bunches with some skin contact. Fermented in cask and stainless steel tank from 500 to 5,000 litres depending on batch quantity. Fermented for 10 to 20 days and at temperatures between 23 and 26°C. Matured on lees for six to eight months with no bâtonnage.
