Winemaker's Notes:

Quality wine, dry. Wine growing area Burgenland. Greenish yellow, spicy and fruity. Fresh, spicy style with peppery components. Full and dry in the length. An uncomplicated but expressive and lively white wine for many occasions.
My Notes:

About Lenz Moser:

The name of Lenz Moser is inextricably linked with wine-growing in Austria. The current Lenz Moser estate winery in Rohrendorf near Krems, first mentioned in an official document as early as 1040, is considered the origin of departure for significant impulses aimed at preserving Austrian wine culture. For example, the "Lenz Moser high training system" was invented here, which revolutionised viticulture in the 1950's.

Apart from its main estate in Rohrendorf, Lenz Moser also operates the castle winery of the Sovereign Order of the Knights of Malta in Mailberg/Weinviertel and the Klosterkeller (cloistral cellar) in Siegendorf/Burgenland. Not only the Lenz Moser high training system is put to use at these locations, but also other aspects of ecological winegrowing: Quality is given preference over quantity, and the focus is placed on organic fertilising, natural pest control, and environmentally gentle weed control.
