This wine is sourced from old vines in two esteemed Leithaberg vineyards, Hackelsberg and Bergschmalister, both rich with limestone soils. The grapes are destemmed and fermented spontaneously for approximately 4 to 5 weeks in open top wooden fermenters before aging on the fine lees for 18 months in both 500L and 2000L neutral oak barrels. This wine is very limited in production.
