It is sourced from elevated and therefore slightly cooler terraces with light, stony soils. The formation of sugar in the grapes develops more slowly in these sites. We harvest the grapes at a time when the taste is already there, yet the natural sugar and potential alcohol content are still comparatively low. This is always the lightest Grüner Veltliner of the vintage.
The fermentation is cool, producing some effervescence in the wine which vanishes again in the course of maturation. Through careful handling, gentle racking, and early bottling enough of this gentle fizz remains to be noticed in the young wine.
