Grown in the continental climate of the Vienna Woods where there is a strong influence of an Alpine wind, the large diurnal temperature difference helps preserve the fresh acidity in the grapes during the ripening period. The soil structure too plays a great part with the calcareous nature adds a mineral undercarriage to the wine making it a superb food partner.
The alcoholic fermentation is done in large wooden barrels that impart little flavour to the final wine but rather they simply allow a gentle oxidation during the process. When the fermentation is finshed it has only 1.5 grams per litre of sugar making it truly dry yet the fine fruit flavours make it charming and very approachable.
