Wine Region: Southern Styria-Austria
The wine year 2013 started with a cold, snowy and very long winter. As a result of long
lasting and thick snow layer the spew of the vine was a little bit lated. During the blossom we had optimal conditions, after that perfect weather did the best for growing of vine and grapes. Summer started with a more weeks lasting heat wave, followed by - for the soil needed - rain. Due to that, the maturity of the grapes was a little bit late, but in the middle of September harvest started. A picture-perfect autumn with warm days and cold nights brought us in the end a perfect vintage.
The result: elegant wines with characteristic variety which are tightly and have a very
harmonic acidity. Wines of the vintage 2013 can be stored and will mature with the years.
Vinification 100 % steel tank fermented and matured. Tasting notes Cool aromas of fresh herbs along with anise, caraway and elder come through in the nose. The palate delivers fresh herbal flavours as well, and is supported by a lively acidity structure.
