Personality: Very out there! There’s the electric backbone of citrus, grapefruit rind and salt, then some lush tropicana vibe of exotic fruit, so fragrant it’s almost honey-like; maybe a hint of peach, dried herbs and wet stone. Enough to get happily lost in for ages.

Vineyard: Neuberg. One of the best and oldest vineyard sites in the Neusiedl area, with hundreds of years of viticultural history. Rocky limestone hill in the northwest of Neusiedl, part of the Leithaberg Mountains with some schist as well as heavier rich loam parts. The Chardonnay grows on 2 plots, planted 1965 & 2017, the Pinot Blanc comes from a plot planted in 2005. Total size 0.81 hectare

Making of: The grapes are hand harvested. ¾ of the grapes were directly pressed and the juice went straight into old Barriques (225L). ¼ fermented on skins for 8 days. Natural fermentation, no temperature control at any stage of winemaking. The wines matured on gross lees for 10 months with an occasional battonage. The barrels were blended together and bottled without any additives, without fining and without filtration.

Winemaker's Note: “Perspektive derives from the Latin "perspicere“, meaning: "to look through“. When it comes to natural wine, the closer you look, the more flavors and aromas you get. AND, to us, natural wine puts wine as you knew it into a whole new perspective. We wanted to capture this contemplative nature of this wine on its label as well: the night suggests elegance, mystery, depth and even something romantic. It creates a certain emotion, which is essential to us when drinking the Perspektive Wines. it calms you down, you focus and relax, yet at the same time, you get excited and curious: the perfect mindset for indulging in these wines that we took a great deal to make!”
