THE WINE'S STORY

The Austrian wine growing region of Kremstal is along side the Wachau, which is a UNESCO world heritage site. It is home to 1,400 hectares of vineyards, many of them on steep terraces growing Gruner Veltliner and Riesling. There are two different mesoclimates at work here. Summers are dry and winters are very cold and they are moderated by the Danube river. Cold down the slope winds originate and case big swings between day and night time temperatures, especially in the months prior to harvest. This interaction of weather helps build complex aromas in the grapes.

SOMMELIER NOTES

Messwein is the lightest wine in this producers range, it is subtle and light with classic Veltliner spice, red apple, citrus and rosewood, very multi-layered and expressive.
