Winery Information:

After only a few years Johann is carving out a formidable reputation for concentrated, mineral-laden white wines. His wines are always in high demand. The production from his five hectares of hillside vineyards in the Spitzer Valley is miniscule. Despite this his prices remain really competitive.

Viticulture:

Yields 20 hl/ha

Soil:

Sandy soils with high mineral content.

Vinification:

100% fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Minimal use of sulphur and natural slight CO2 is left on the wine to lift and freshen the palate. 'Federspiel' denotes that the wine has been made in the classic style, fresh and mineral, max 4 grams residual, 12-12.5%

Tasting Note:

Still restrained; fine aromas of white pepper and cardamom, fruit flavours reminiscent of green apple. Well balanced.

Everyday serving suggestion:

Grilled trout.
