The vintage of 2016 started with an early bud break. At the end of April, the abundant number of grapes were naturally thinned out by frost. The summer was extremely varied (rainy/sunny), so that the vines could absorb enough nutrients from the soil. The ripening period was marked by a warm summer, which allowed us to harvest healthy, ripe grapes. The wines from the 2016 vintage are refreshingly fruity, with lovely flavours and pleasant acidity.
The Rieslings are characterized by stone fruit aromas that are reminiscent of apricots and vineyard peaches. The Grüner Veltliner impresses with a full-bodied aroma and reflects the character of the location beautifully. Especially successful this year is the Grüner Veltliner Privat, which is characterized by its cool minerality and notes of tobacco spice.
