At first the nose is subdued, hinting at fresh, white field mushroom and something sonorous and sweet behind it. The palate, however, comes with a high, bright and resplendent note of lemon zest and candied peel freshness that makes the nobly sweet richness even more luscious. This strikes a most eloquent and almost serene balance. The long finish brims with fresh zestiness. Drink by 2050. 95 points. Anne Krebiehl MW, Wine Enthusiast
A blend of Riesling, Grüner Veltliner, Pinot Blanc and Gelber Muskateller from terraced vineyards throughout the Wachau. The wine reflects the elegant and precise style and character of Wachau sweet wines. Botrytised Riesling grapes have a high concentration of sugar that creates the viscosity of wines. Additionally, top quality sweet wines also require a small portion of healthy, non-botrytised grapes to retain fine fruit character and precision.
The grapes were carefully hand-picked between mid-October and mid-November with an average yield with only 1.5 tonnes per hectare. Temperature controlled fermentation and vinification in stainless steel tanks guarantee particular elegance and structure. These wines are straw yellow with golden reflections.
