Wine Enthusiast:

"Appetizing notes of Mirabelle plums capture attention. Lemon freshness lightens everything and makes for a bright, light but citrus-fresh wine with lots of verve and extra drive." September 2016

Falstaff Magazine:

"Light yellow-green, silver reflexes. Attractive nuances after ripe peach, delicate blossom honey, a touch of orange zest. Firm, white apple, lively acid structure, mineral finish, fine lemon touch in the finish, good development potential." Translated from original German. Summer 2016.

Product Description:

About the Producer

"A family tradition of more than 200 years of wine-growing with the world famous names like “Sandgrube” and “Weinzielberg” have made this estate well-known. Wolfgang Aigner, the representative of the ninth generation to produce complex, fruity and earthy wines, has never seen this background as a burden, but as a boon. The sites are the biggest treasure of the Aigner Estate and as such it is an on-going task to produce the best wines. Sandgrube was first mentioned in archives back to A.D. 1001. It comprises the sloping, terraced sites which extend east from the town centre to Rohrendorf. Even in medieval times people found out that this soil was perfect for growing especially ample and spicy Gruner Veltliner. As far back as 1135 the name “Weinzierlpersch” can be found in archives. The ground here consists of a mixture of gravel from the Danube and prehistoric rock which is covered by a layer of loess, about 1.5 meters thick." - Importer
