Producer Note
After only a few years, Johann is carving out a formidable reputation for concentrated, mineral laden white wines. His wines are always in high demand. The production from his five hectares of hillside vineyard in the Spitzer Valley is miniscule, but despite this his prices remain really competitive. Vintage
2015 was characterised by fair weather in the spring, with good conditions during flowering. An uncommonly hot and dry summer set in, slowing the ripening process. Rains arrived in August providing much needed irrigation. A mild autumn, with warm days and cool nights encouraged the grapes to reach perfect maturity levels, resulting in grapes with a marvellous depth of fruit. Vineyard
The Grüner Veltliner vines are grown in the Wachau, the most prestigious viticultural area in Austria. The vineyard is located on the steep terraces of the Spitzer Valley with proximity to the Danube. The temperature variation in the valley, with warmer days and cooler nights, has a significant role to play in the ripening of the berries. The vines are grown in Gneiss soils, made up of schist and granite with a high mineral content. The yields are kept low at 25hl/ha, with hand selected bunches, which are harvested at optimal ripeness. Winemaking
100% of the fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, with a minimal use of sulphur, in order to create a wine which ultimately expresses the terroir. A natural slight CO2 remained in the wine to lift and freshen the palate. 'Federspiel' denotes that the wine has been made in the classic style, fresh and mineral, with a maximum of four grams of residual sugar. Tasting Note
A fabulous, restrained wine with apple and lime characters combined with white pepper, cardamom and spicy minerality. Balanced and refreshing. Serving Suggestion
A wonderful pairing for fresh fish dishes such as grilled trout.
