TRADITION – Grüner Veltliner
It all began during a vertical tasting at Schloss Gobelsburg in June 1999, when we tasted Grüner Veltliner from our vinothek 30 years back. A journalist asked me then – after a very exciting tasting – how these wines may have tasted in these ancient years, when they were young. This question did not leave me and so I started to try to get more information about the winemaking of these former ages. Father Bertrand helped me a lot – for he was responsible for the winemaking of the estate between 1958 and 1980. So I started the revival of the character of wines and their taste, that had been in our cellars for centuries.
The grapes were pressed in the same way as it was done with the tree presses – soft, long and only with a few crush ups, without sedimentation the wine was fermented without temperature control in a 25 hl oak cask from the Manhartsberg. After fermentation the wine was raked every 3 – 4 months until he was clear and bottled after 18 month.
