Tasting Notes

Aromas of apple, melon, white pepper and light citrus. Juicy and dry on the palate, the aromas translate onto flavors. This is a refreshing tasty wine.

WINE INFORMATION

Located in Dross at the northeastern edge of the Kremstal and just west of the Kamptal, the Vorspannhof has long enjoyed a fine reputation. In 2006 proprietor/winemaker Silke Mayr began a collaboration with Walter Buchegger, whose family holdings are in Gedersdorf east of Krems. At that time Buchegger took the leading role in both vineyards and cellars, freeing Mayr to spend more time raising their young children. In 2018 Walter passed away and Silke now runs the winery.

Vines are planted in loess soils. Just over half of the grapes for this wine come from Silke's family's vineyards; the rest are sourced from neighboring growers in Krems and Dross. This is bottled and made in the shared Buchegger-Mayr winery. Full-bunch pressing; fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures, aged on the lees in tank until February of the following year.
