Ried Spiegel Grüner Veltliner

In the south east of Langenlois, towards the neigbouring village Gobelsburg, the hill and single vineyard (Ried) Spiegel is located. Loess soil with a slightly higher amout of sand makes up most of the soil structure. Old vines with lower annual yealds deliver very concentrated berries, which are selected by hand before reaching the cellar.

After gently pressing the grapes, the juice runs freely into pre-used big wooden barrels made from Austrian oak. The wine remains there on its full lees until its bottled with a minimum of intervention. This means very late and low sulfer addition, long yeast contact and making use of gravitation.

Ried Hasel Riesling

The single-vineyard (Ried) Hasel lies in the north-east of Langenlois. The ground consists of calcareous soil and contains sandy and partially rocky elements in deeper layers. The Riesling vines are 40+ years in age and result in a very rich Riesling full of finesse.

Only the healthiest grapes remain on the vine during the pre-selection process by hand, before the Hasel vineyard is harvested. Whole bunch pressing and yet some time on skins result in an elegant wine with a good structured backbone.

Ried Kittmannsberg Grüner Veltliner

In the south-west of Langenlois, the single vineyard (Ried) Kittmannsberg is shaping the landscape. Mainly loess soil forming big terraces are characterizing this vineyard. The u-shaped form of the hill is leading to a very special micro climate. For this wine only the oldest vines from the highest parts of Kittmansberg are chosen to reach a nice physoligical ripeness without botrytis for a spicy and complex Grüner Veltliner.

After destemming and a short period of resting on the mash, the berries are pressed to start a natural fermentation. Almost a year will pass before the wine is racked off the lees and bottled. Minimum intervention and no fining are the ground rules for making this honest Grüner Veltliner.

Chardonnay Zeitlos

Grown on calcareous soils in the south of Langenlois, the grapes are harvested and pressed as a whole bunch. Fermentation takes place in French oak with about 25% new barrels.
