After a winter with rather little precipitation, the year began neither early nor late. From the end of April, the weather was mainly humid. The total amount of precipitation was not noticeably more, however, there were constantly small rain showers. This made it particularly difficult in the vineyard, especially with regard to the fungal disease downy mildew. Careful vineyard work and targeted plant protection were very important. Wet weather also set in during the ripening phase, as a result of which the Grüner Veltliner, in particular, had to wait. Indian summer at the beginning of October was still able to push the final ripening. The harvest had to be very precise and required time and patience. The grapes were carefully selected, and rotten berries were picked out. The first wines are elegant and light on their feet, but very harmonious.
