Tasting Notes

In the heart of the Wachau, on the slightly obscure south bank of the Danube, Georg Frischengruber is realizing his dream. Georg is the fifth generation of his family to steward their estate, now 10 hectares, mostly old vine grüner veltliner and a smaller quantity of riesling. Since taking over from his father, Heinz, in 2010, Georg has trained his attention on meticulous handwork in the vines. This Riesling Federspiel is from the vineyards of Kirnberg, Kreuzberg and Goldberg. The vines range in age from 30 to 55 years old and grow on gneiss and granite. After a spontaneous and cool fermentation in stainless steel the wine matures an additional 6 months on its lees in stainless.
