Wine Insight

This a sustainably run vineyard by Dorli Muhr and Dirk Niepoort. The soils are mainly composed of sand, loess, Limestone and clay. Though these are traditional vineyards growing mainly Blaufränkisch (German grape variety) The duo decides to harvest other varieties of grapes which would provide a different expression other than the status quo. The winery is very archaic. Everything is very basic down to the hand picking and foot pressing of the grapes, But the results are wonderful. The wine with 'no name' is made from 90% Grüner Veltliner and 10% Riesling. Two thirds of the grapes are grown on the very dry and poor limestone soils of the Spitzerberg vineyard, the balance being from vineyards south of Prellenkirchen (the 'P-N' in the name), on the banks of the Leitha river.

This particular Cuvee is Greenish yellow in color. High-pitched nose combines lime, herbs and honey. Juicy and concentrated, with terrific energy, crisp fruit and spice flavors, is an attribute of amazing intensity that comes from old vines. Finishes long and light on its feet.
