Product Description

Subtlety and strong elegance are the features of this wine. In its early times rather occlusive, this wine shows true greatness after only a few months, with the potential to develop over the next 5 to 10 years. Some of the grapes come from plantings located in Kremstal, even though they are situated right next to Loibenberg. The rest are from Wachau vineyards that almost reach the Danube. The peak altitude is 550 meters high. The soils are mostly sandy clay with underlying primary gneiss rock. The warm, south-east exposition provide the wines with enough fruit to make them accessible, but Pfaffenberg’s steeply terraced rocky plantings dominate the wine. Aged in stainless steel tanks. Refined, pure and elegant, with a long finish and vivid minerality underpinning the citrus and white peach fruit.
