Type: Orange Wine
Grape: Gruner Veltliner/Welschriesling/Chardonnay
Winemaker Stefan Wellanschitz likes the phenolic notes of skin-fermented wines but was looking for a way to preserve the wine's elegance. He achieved just that with intracellular fermentation - the intact grapes rest in a large fermentation vessel for 62 days where native yeasts slowly start the fermentation process inside of the berries, leading to a gentler extraction of the skins. After maceration, the grapes were pressed and aging was finished in oak barrels. Organic farming and no added sulfur.
A pale, aromatic skin contact wine. Bone dry, smooth and mineral, with notes of apple, grapefruit, yeast, melon, and white flowers.
