  • Tasting notes

    Light yellow green; splendid bloom perfume intermingled with small white peach aromas; the palate is tightly knit and has acid structure rich in finesse; exuding delicate hints of lemon; vivid and vibrant with a vigorous finish that comes back in a wave of stone fruit flavours.

  • Winemaking notes

    East facing vineyard from the top site Engelreich; conglomerate soil with high chalk content. Selection of the best physiologically ripe grapes; crushed; skin contact for 4 hours; pressed; fermented in stainless steel; kept on the lees for 4 months.
