94 Points - Wine Enthusiast: Citrus pith and oakmoss carry the nose. The palate, however, comes in with a richer, smoother edge. There is a fine, textured, pithy freshness, too, and some understated power and drive. Drink 2022–2035

Food Pairing: This full-bodied Grüner Veltliner fits very well with traditional Austrian cuisine. Pork, veal, poultry, in general with hearty & aromatic dishes.

The Domain: This genteel sloping and extensively terraced vineyard lies to the west of the town of Langenlois; it faces towards the southeast and is protected from the wind by its location within a basin-shaped topographic depression. The soil consists of deep, highly calcareous, sandy silt derived from extensive layers of loess.
