Vineyard: the lower part of the Hohenegg hill. Vines planted in 2001 on Opok soil – limestone and clay silt. Certified biodynamic, estate owned.

Grapes: Sauvignon Blanc

Making of: Grapes are hand-harvested into small crates, with manual selection in the vineyard. Destemmed, left on skins overnight, and then gently pressed in open pneumatic press. Both the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations happen spontaneously in old neutral French barriques and 300L barrels. The wine spends about 12 months in total neutral oak casks. Bottled without fining or filtration, no sulfur added.

Personality: superbly aromatic, but in a different way than you’d expect from the variety. Lush and with a beautiful tension in the mouth.
