Our BRUT RESERVE is the most classic in our Sparkling assortment
The typical style of the BRUT RESERVE originates from the cool and animating freshness of the Danube region. High altitude vineyards paired with the personality of the regional grape varieties of Grüner Veltliner, Riesling and Pinot Noir form the style of this classic sparkling. Grapes are harvested at the optimal moment, transported in small boxes and are immediately pressed, whereby only the heart of the must is used. After six months of cask storage, it is bottled for the second fermentation. It matures for between 2 and 3 years on the lees, which helps to develop the wine’s creamy texture, until it is hand riddled and then disgorged.
