Type: Orange Win
Grape: Grüner Veltliner/Welschriesling
Winemaker Stefan Wellanschitz likes the phenolic notes of skin-fermented wines but wanted a way to preserve the wine's elegance. He achieved that with a process of intracellular fermentation--the whole-cluster grapes rest in a larger fermentation vessel where native yeasts slowly start the fermentation process inside of the berries, leading to a gentler extraction of the skins. After nine weeks the grapes were pressed and finished primary and secondary fermentation in larger used Stockinger oak barrels.
A dry, light and delicate skin contact white wine.
