From his Love to the Vine
Located in the wine-growing district of Wagram/Großriedenthal, the vineyards are managed and curated year-round by the extraordinarily talented cellarer and vintner, Andreas Alt. The aspect of the vineyard, the extent and professionalism afforded in its care, and the regulation and hand-selection of its yields are the three mantras by which the estate is maintained, and in doing so guarantees the greatest possible result. Conceived by soil and climate, the grapes are harvested at their fullest maturity – late in the autumn. Following diligent processing, the Grüner Veltliner is then allowed to develop in stainless steel tanks. The red wines – Zweigelt, Merlot and Syrah – blossom in their own unique characters, terroir-aroma and vintage typical of the traditional barrique. In order to dress the noble cuvée with the full aroma of the oak barrels, new French barriques are used each year.
