Aromas of understated tarry-mineral with acacia and hints of fresh white bread. There is orange zest and quince on the palate. It is a bright, straightforward impression overall, with a lengthy finish that reflects the limestone and calcareous sandstone terroir.
Wine Maker Notes
This Weissburgunder Leithaberg is made from vines that are up to 30 years old and grow in three outstanding sites on the eastern slopes of the Leithagebirge: the Kollern, Unterer Edelgraben, and the Alter Berg. All these vineyards express the region‘s typical fossil-rich limestone soil. The “DAC” in the name of this wine underscores its origin, the protected region of Leithaberg, and stands for power and vitality that have been given to this Weissburgunder by the minerally soils. The grapes are hand harvested in September. After selection in the vineyard, de-stemming and a short maceration period, careful pressing took place. Spontaneous fermentation followed. The wine was then matured for 16 months in large oak barrels.
