Funkstille, Austria

We all need a little 'Funkstille' (radio silence) in our life now and again.

Kick back and take a moment to enjoy the silence with a glass of Grüner Veltliner. With its subtle exotic hints, ripe pear and fresh citrus flavours, it's a dry wine with complex flavours. The palate is rich with flavours of melon and grapefruit with a refreshing, zippy finish.

Viticulture

From a single vineyard site is situated in the Northen Krems Valley from an area north of the city of Krems near the Danube and in a beautiful area around the town of Seftenberg, the vines are planted on a mixture of loess, clay, granite mix. Sustainably certified by agroVet, they also produce their own fertiliser. They produce their own seeds to sew cover crops in the vineyards and use straw from the fields in the young vineyards to protect the vines from dry stress.

Winemaking

The winery is energy neutral, producing the wine with their Biogas plant and a photovoltaic system which produces more energy than they need.

HIGHLIGHTS
  • Grüner Veltliner from Lower Austria, vinified in stainless steel.
