Winemakers: Theresa and Bernhard Liszt


Grapes: Pinot Blanc


Characteristics: An incredible and complex aromatic palette with an expressive nose of hazelnut, quince, caramel, honey, mirabelle plum, pear, and some menthol and verbena notes. In the mouth the wine is not quite dry (residual sugar of 1.9g/L), but very nicely balanced by a high acidity and above all a pronounced aromatic intensity on notes of marzipan, hazelnut, caramel, with a finish on expressive spices: white pepper, nutmeg. An exceptional wine.


Pairing: Roasted poultry with truffle sauce


Aging: 3 to 6 years


Alcohol: 14% Vol.


Cultivation: Extraordinary geological and climatic conditions along the limestone mountains of Leitha, for just over seven hectares of vines In organic farming in Leithaprodersdorf in the Neusiedler See region in Austrian Brugenland.


Vinification: If in the vineyards it is the whole family that is active especially during the obviously manual harvest, in the cellar they remain on the other hand in the background and minimize their interventions as much as possible. You can rely on the laws of nature such as natural fermentation and gravity. Here fermentation in large wooden barrels. Filled directly into the bottle with no added additives except for a very moderate dose of sulphites.


For the record: Traditionally, only what was produced on their own farm was poured and served in the Austrian Heuriger. For some time now, the Liszt family has been working to return to this idea, using charcuterie from their own free-range pigs and sourdough bread made from cereals from their crops. Now in collaboration with kitchen professional and hunter Peter Zinter, with whom the family shares the down-to-earth approach.
