In the search for a timeless Veltliner with great ageing potential that is not characterized by volatile primary fruit, since 2009 we have been working with Grüner Veltliner using a maceration similar to that used in the production of our Pinot Noir. The berries (from the Loiserberg) were gently destemmed, fermented in a 500 liter stainless steel tank, and left on the skins for 10 weeks. Only the free flowing, light, and initially very reductive finished wine (no pressing) was subsequently put into into a small neutral oak barrel for 6 months.
