Paul - named after our son - is our Lagrein Passito. Just like its namesake Paul, it is powerful and energetic - lively and also a little impetuous. The grapes are dried in the barn after the harvest and after fermentation the wine matures for 18 months in wooden barrels. A fruity and powerful dessert wine
It grows on our highest vineyard at about 600 meters above sea level in the Kalterer district of St. Nikolaus with a lot of morning sun and cool airy climate.The vines were planted only in 2012. 20% of this wine matures in barrique barrels, giving our Sauvignon that harmony that we appreciate so much. Vegetal nose with citrus aromas and bright floral tones, hints of elderberry. Ripe, melting in the mouth, butter and cream caramel, fine acidity, vanilla hints, good substance and persistence, floral and very light ethereal nuances, buttery finish with mineral hints.
It our signature wine, the Lagrein Riserva. This wine grows mainly on gravel soils on our vineyards in Terlan at the entrance to the former mine, as well as in Andrian and Auer. Fermentation takes place with a lot of maceration, as does the subsequent aging in wood, where it remains for a total of 30 months. Slightly toasty aroma of ripe, partly dried black berries with bitter chocolate aromas and coffee. Firm in the mouth, ripe black fruit, smoky wood, very light malty notes. Present, somewhat sandy tannin, powerful, earthy in the background and compact finish, which with sufficient air by decanting clearly gains juice.
Terlaner klassisch is the mixed set of grape varieties Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Müller Thurgau and Riesling, which we harvest in our vineyard in Andrian. The production area of Terlaner klassisch is limited. It may only be grown in the three municipalities of Terlan, Andrian and Nals and grows here on loose limestone porphyry soils before maturing on the fine lees in wooden and steel barrels. Clear aroma with fine citrus and pome fruit aromas, floral nuances, herbs and light minerality. Firm, bright, fine-juicy fruit on the palate, lively acidity. Herbs and floral nuances in the background, restrained power, bright minerality and juicy finish with bite.
Marie - our daughter - is the namesake for this wine.Many of her characteristics fit perfectly to this Gewürztraminer Spätlese. She has a tremendously positive charisma, her eyes shine lively like life. Playful yet elegant with a golden lightness. The grapes for her wine grow on vines in St. Nikolaus. There we harvest the dried berries with partial noble rot, press the mash and then ferment it in steel tanks. A late harvest with a light amber color, it smells of candied citrus, some lychee and a hint of bacon. In the mouth sweet fruit, with floral aromas, dried fruit, fine acidity and a hint of pepper. Complex, harmonious and powerful.

Distinct floral, a little ethereal aroma with citrus and stone fruit aromas. Hay and mineral hints. Juicy, concentrated fruit with floral and delicately yeasty aromas. Present acidity, lots of structure, a bit of elderberry, background minerality. A touch of tannin, good depth, a little smoke and light wood, juicy finish.
