For centuries, the Weinviertel, in lower Austria, has been the region that delivers its wines to Vienna as it borders the city. Due to the rolling hills of the region the vines are grown on the tops of the hills to have better aeration and better drained soil.
Gentle processing with hand picking and ultra-gentle destemming guarantee minimal fruit damage. The skin is in contact for 34 hrs., fermented at 20°C in steel tanks, accompanied by temperature-controlled fermentation on its lees until April. Fermentation takes place at very low temperatures (16°C/60°F) to achieve the brightest aromatic components. A blanket of inert gas is also used to maximize aroma and flavor potential. Gentle processing of the grapes as well as the juice guarantees optimal quality.
