Life for Löss is truly not so easy: its vines have to sink their roots particularly deep, as it grows where the slope suddenly drops 120 metres from the Paulsner Feld steeply down into the Warth Valley. The Pinot Grigio thus draws all the more strength from the intense sunlight and the mineral-rich loess soil. The steep slope is a major challenge for vines and winegrowers alike – making them equally strong, enduring and resilient! Slow fermentation takes place in large wooden barrels, before maturation for 5-7 months on fine lees in small wooden barrels. Partial malolactic fermentation.
The wine offers a complex bouquet of pineapple, melon and ripe pear paired by white flowers and a fine hint of vanilla. Balanced taste of fine mineral freshness with a characterful finish.
