Wine information

The hand-picked grapes for this Grüner Veltliner come from old vines in the cool and extremely chalky Lindauer site (currently in conversion to organic viticulture) in the Leithaberg community of Jois. After hand harvesting and sorting, the wine was traditionally fermented in wooden barrels to one gram of residual sugar and aged on full lees for twelve months.


tending towards golden yellow, rich straw yellow with a light green reflex


Intense and spicy meets one Elektra in the nose. The long maturation on the full yeast provides sweet yeast notes in the actually dry wine. Pears and ripe yellow apples can be detected as well as garden herbs, pistachios and ripe lemons. On top of that, there is a hint of white blossoms and lime.


Wild and independent like the Elektra in the libretto by Hugo von Hofmannsthal to Richard Strauss' opera of the same name, the wine shows itself on the palate. Silky in the slightly grippy texture, it is at the same time powerful, it shows tannin and a pleasantly biting acidity. Besides the slightly yeasty body, there are many herbal notes, furthermore a yellow and green aroma of zest and apple peel. No question, this is an unbound wine a Grüner Veltinerwho doesn't want to be pigeonholed.
