This is the first vintage to carry the new KremstalDAC designation. To qualify for this label, a wine must be made from Riesling or Grüner Veltliner grown in the Kremstal region, must pass quality tests ensuring freshness and typicity, and can be no more than 12.5% alcohol. The typically Veltliner is tangy and light. This is because of the good loess soil and the very good climate. Fresh and fruity; the aroma reminds on white currant, citrus fruits and the typically "Veltliner-Pfefferl”. The aromas are repeat also on the palate.

"There’s very clean and pure fruit on this light, fresh wine. Tight with acidity, it has a green apple flavor and a good pinch of pepper. This is a great summer wine." Wine Enthusiast 88 points
