The Käferberg, “beetle hill,” vineyard sits in a high spot above Steinmassel. The land has alternating layers of various soil types; heavy loam often meets light sand as well as some gravel. With a generally cool microclimate, long hang times here enable the Grüner Veltliner grapes to reach their full ripeness. 

In mid-October, the grapes were harvested carefully by hand, then underwent light sheet filtration and fined with Bentonite. Afterwards, the wine was racked and aged on fine lees in Austrian oak barrels for 12 months. 

Tasting Notes

The first impression is given through green and yellow fruit aromas mixed with soft herb & spice notes. With its peppery flavor, this is a traditional Grüner Veltliner. The palate is tight, yet demonstrates fine fruitiness, power and a cool, spicy mineral character.

Food Pairing

Pair with arugula salad, zucchini fritters, or lumb crab cakes.
