"Notes of ripe, juicy, fleshy plum and ripe black cherry marry on the fruity nose. The palate follows through and presents vivid, juicy, smoke-tinged plum with a hint of toastiness. The body is smooth and curvy, with a fine contour of vivid freshness. An elegant red with potential. Drink now–2032."
Meinhard Forstreiter took over the estate from his parents in 2001 with his wife Isabella, thoroughly modernizing the operation. He had grown up on the estate and was of course familiar with every detail, every corner of its vineyards: the detailed conditions of the individual microclimates, the vines and their specific characteristics. Since then, the establishment has grown steadily to the point where they now have a proud fifty-four hectares under cultivation, where they primarily grow and vinify Grüner Veltliner in all its various shapes and sizes – crisp, lively wines as well as supple, almost Burgundian bottlings with a creamy texture. In addition, Forstreiter produces elegant Rieslings, a fine Sauvignon Blanc and the particularly delicious & inviting Gelber Muskateller, accompanied by velvety reds from Zweigelt, Sankt Laurent & Pinot Noir, which are marketed successfully all over the world.
