About

98

Crushed lemon leaf and a heady hint of conifer peek through on the shy but nonetheless rather citric nose. The palate with its cut and concentration leaves you in no doubt about its absolute steeliness, its inherent drive, its uncompromising but ripe freshness. That lovely conifer and lemon notion still plays aromatically around the edges, making this heady and lifted. A profound core of stone lends eternal energy. Drink 2025–2050.

Product Description:

From the Winemakers' Website: "The geological and climatic counterpoint in our location repertoire. Located on the Danube Bend between Dürnstein and Weissenkirchen, cooler air masses coming from the northwest are clearly noticeable. Amphibolites and mica schist are replacing gneiss as the dominant parent rock. The style changes with the terroir. In the upper part of the Liebenberg, where our vineyards are also located, you have to deal with tight and compact structures, the lower part looks a bit wider and denser".
