  • Origin: Wachau, Austria
  • Winery: Nikolaihof
  • Soil Type: The vineyard consists of loam, loess, and paragneiss soils, contributing to the wine's unique profile.
  • Grape Variety: Grüner Veltliner
  • Winemaking: The grapes ferment spontaneously with their own yeasts, and the must is matured for three and a half years in large, old barrels. The finished wine has 2.1 grams of residual sugar and 5.9 grams of acidity.
  • Biodynamic Practices: Since 1971, Nikolaihof has been working according to biodynamic principles, resulting in Demeter certification. This includes using nettle liquid manure, valerian drops, horsetail tea, and specially prepared preparations instead of herbicides, pesticides, or fungicides.
  • Tasting Notes: The wine exhibits a rich golden yellow color with lime green reflections. The nose is pronounced, showcasing the maturity of the wine with aromas of quince, light tobacco leaf, dried Persian lime, and preserved lemon. The palate is characterized by its contemplative, serene nature with a silky fruit texture and delicate phenolics.
  • Pairing: Best enjoyed in a large glass or decanter, and suitable for further aging in the cellar. Ideal with sophisticated dishes that complement its complex profile.
