This wine comes from the single site of Langsurer Brüdergerg, which has 50% to 80% gradient and is south facing. The juice is spontaneously barrel-fermented with natural yeast and spends 11 months in used barrels. No malolatic fermentation has taken place, leaving the wines with higher acidity. Only 2 available.
The nose is redolent of flowers, mineral and apricots. A touch of cedary oak is detected on the palate with a vibrant acidity.
90% Chardonnay, the rest is Viognier, Traminer, Muscat, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc.
