Sweet wine is one of the estate’s specialities. Because of the Danube region’s dry continental climate, large quantities of grapes infected with noble rot (Botrytis) is a rare occurrence indeed.
But when there is Botrytis in sufficient quantities, we select the infected berries and bunches from the vineyards very carefully, and then separate the grapes in a second selection process for Auslese, Beerenauslese or Trockenbeerenauslese wines.
AWARDS & TASTING NOTES
BLIND TASTED BY ANDREAS LARSSON: Rating 94
Medium deep golden colour. Intense floral nose with yellow fruit, pineapple, floral and stony notes. Rather high sweetness but backed by a tremendous freshness, pure, lingering and very unctuous finish with fresh not caramelized or dried fruit, lovely.
Cask sample: Juniper and resin, sassy yet beautifully woven together in this embryonic wine. Lovely sweet and sour play in the flavour profile. Firm, tight and chiseled; multi-layered, racy and has good length. A promising future!
