Grüner Veltliner Stein
The Stein is the so-called entry level of all of their terroir efforts: a prelude to their series of single-vineyard wines. The grapes for this wine come from various mountain slopes with the Loiserberg and the Steinmassl making up the lion’s share. The goal is to deliver an elegant interpretation of Langenlois and the cool, elevated slopes that make it such a special place. The must was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures and left to rest on the fine lees before bottling in spring.
Grapefruit, salt, and wet rock, refreshing, rejuvenating and appetizing: all these attributes are found on the nose and the palate. Stone fruit completes the array of aromas. The structure is compact and tightly woven while the style is cool and elegant, and a fine texture coats the mouth. Playful and refreshing, but by no means superficial.
