GRÜNER VELTLINER SMARAGD “ACHLEITEN”

An elegant, powerful, expressive Smaragd wine, delicately spicy with a lively and refreshing aroma: a fruity firework.
Its exotic echoes of fruit charmingly coat the palate. The wine exhibits an even balance between acidity, alcohol and the natural sweetness of the fruit – it's simply grand.

The grapes were harvested by hand during the last week of October.

Soil type: The sand made out of Gföhler Gneis is a good foundation for the vines. Over the centuries the earth was constantly washed down by rain, and carried up again by hand. The river-sand increased the mineral content of the earth and this special characteristic of the soil improves the wine and shows itself in the diverse array of aromas.

Wine production: The grapes are crushed and after the pressing allowed to ferment with a fine yeast. After a six month period the wine is filtered and bottled  in April.
