Named after the Löess terraces, which are a classical feature of the Danube Valley. This wine comes from soft formed hills around Langenlois. Löess is a sandy soil – brought to the region by winds ten-thousands of years ago from the Alps. This lime soil element gives the Grüner Veltliner its classical structure of elegance and his unique floral and citric character.
100% Grüner Veltliner.
Harvested in October, the average age of the vines is 18 years. Purely stainless steel fermentation and quick bottling to capture all the zesty vitality of Grüner.
Drink now and over the next 2 years.
This eminent winery has a history spanning nearly 900 years, to 1171 where Cistercian monks of Stift Zwettl were granted their first vineyards at Heiligenstein and Gaisberg. The Domaine has survived wars, economic recessions and even a major fire - and is a testament to its character (and faith) that it has come back each time stronger and more focused.
In 1996, the monks asked Michael and Eva Moosbrugger to take responsibility for both the vineyard estate and winemaking. They jumped at the chance and over the next 20 years they taken the already highly regarded Domaine to new heights.
Makes a wonderful aperitif – but can also be enjoyed with lighter, spring/summer dishes such as meat, fish and vegetarian salads. Would partner new season asparagus as well.
