Wine maker notes
Spiegel, meaning “mirror,” are typically hilltop sites in Austria and were lookout posts for attack. This Spiegel is pure loess soil giving a straightforward Gruner Veltliner that is “easier to understand”, Fred says. Thanks to the deep, well-drained soils, the vines have formed deeply penetrating root systems, thus overcoming even long periods of draught without damage. This site is ideal for growing Grušner Veltliner. The ripe, crisp grapes were harvested in October. In order to retain as much terroir in the wine as possible, the must did not undergo fining, but was put directly into traditional oak barrels. There, it was fermented with natural yeasts from the vineyard. The wine was then racked and aged on the lees until bottling.
