Grapes are hand harvested and fermented on the skins for about 10 days without temperature control. The grapes are then pressed and the juice goes in stainless steel tanks and acacia barrels for 14 months of elevage on the gross lees. The wine is bottled unfined, unfiltered and with a small addition of sulfur.

About the Winemaker:

Alexander and Maria Koppitsch began making wine in Burgenland in 2011. They took over their parents 5.5-hectare winery and moved from selling their grapes into making their own wine. The vineyards are in the Neusiedl am See, a small village situated at the shores of the Neusidl Lake and on the eastern end of the Leitha Mountains which feature soft, rolling hills of mostly limestone soil. Like his father and grandfather before him, Alex does not believe in introducing any additives into the grapes or the wine. Alex takes pride on performing every aspect of the vineyard management and the winemaking by hand, on a very small scale.
