Description

Spiegel
Spiegel, a southerly-exposed site at about 250 meters above sea level, stretches just in front of the town of Langenlois, in view of the river Danube. It extends over a vast layer of loess (up to 40 meters) which has a light and sandy surface. Thanks to the deep, well-drained soils, the vines have formed deeply penetrating root systems thus overcoming even long periods of draught without damage. This site is ideal for growing Grüner Veltliner. The grapes marry so well with the terroir that they yield highly aromatic, concentrated wines. A massive Grüner with a long life ahead.

Vinification
Selective harvest in small crates; maceration for 12 hours, just low fining and filled into traditional oak casks (2,500 litres). There, it was fermented with natural yeasts from the vineyard. The wine was racked for the first time in April 2013 and is being aged on fine lees in oak casks until bottling in September 2013.
