This family run estate is run by Johann Reinisch’s three sons: Hannes, Michael and Christian. With a 2,000 year legacy of wine growing in the region, the Reinischs maintain traditions with vineyards planted with 65 % red and 35 % white vines. Local grape varieties and traditions are hugely important here as the family has its own vine nursery; where they help to sustain indigenous grape varieties, such as Rotgipfler and Zierfandler cultivated in their Gumpoldskirchen vineyards.
The best grapes from Gumpoldskirchen were used to create this wine. The juice was left to go through a spontaneous fermentation in wooden barrels of various sizes. It was then matured for a further 10 months before bottling.
On the nose the wine is very minerally with notes of mandarin and lychees. On the palate it is both sweet and sour, with flavours of fresh and dried fruit, this wine is very well structured and elegant with a lingering finish.
