Grau- & Weißburgunder Spiegel

2018

A bouquet of refined, herbal and white fruit accents, hay flowers and just a hint of brioche; dry and fresh and quite juicy with a good grip and a fully present mouthfeel, ripe apple and pear characters on the front palate, a hint of herbs and spice in the long finale. A highly pleasurable, Burgundian-style of wine.

The name of the vineyard „Spiegel“ (mirror) is said to derive from Latin “spectaculum” (“look-out”). In the ancient times of the “Limes”, the Romans probably used the spot to observe the Germanic tribes to the north of the Danube.

However, still up to now most of the folks think that the name is linked to the convex vaulting of the 300 meter hill, a kind of “mirror” to the sky. The height and exposure of the vineyard with perfect aeration allow to harvest the burgundy varieties a bit later and give both physical ripeness and freshness to a clean fruit.

The 2018 vintage
Nature provided us with a rich and mature harvest! The earlier wines in the cellar indicate good things to come. Here is a quick review of our vintage 2018: January was quite warm, February and March cool once again. Then, however, instead of springtime, summer immediately arrived in Langenlois! In Kamptal we did not suffer any late frost, just a short cooler period with continuous and quite heavy rain in May and many, many hours of sunlight, making circumstances ideal for an incredibly early and perfect flowering (starting the 22nd of May). There were high hopes for an outstanding harvest. Summer was extremely dry, apart from a few...

Maturation

Both varieties ferment in 300 liter Austrian oak barrels and then mature in 2500 l barrels before assemblage.

Food pairing recommendation

Extremely versatile with food - from traditional Austrian to Pan-Asian cuisine; from pork scallop to stir fried meat and vegetables; this wine is a very charming partner to a large range of dishes without imposing its own character but supporting the tastes of a variety of ingredients.
