About This Wine
The name of this wine is program, whereby the grapes of the vintages 2012 and 2013 come from different terrace vineyards with partly old vines (Bruck, Schön, Buschenberg, Hochrain, Loibenberg etc). In each case the quantities were too small to fill them separately. However, these are sites for potential top quality, mostly on primary rock.
From the 2014 vintage onwards, the wine also contains grapes from the flat Unterloibner site KREUTLES, which will no longer be bottled as a separate site wine from 2014 onwards. Thus, from now on, the LIEBEDICH is my classic, authentic "Wachauer", which in each case represents the typical vintage characteristics of the region in a way that encourages drinking.
About Austrian Wine
Austria is a country with over 4000 years of wine making history, however, it unfortunately doesn't seem to enjoy the status and popularity that the high quality of it's wines deserve. Decades later, the country is still feeling the effects of a scandal in 1985 that destroyed its credibility at the time.
Grüner Veltliner is the most important wine made in Austria, distinguished by its lightly fruity, noticeable spice and characteristic white pepper notes. This variety comprises roughly a third of all plantings. In terms of volume, Riesling plays a much smaller role than in Germany, but is responsible for some of the most appreciated dry white wines made in the country.
In red varietals, Austrian native varieties are dominant and include the tart and peppery Zweigelt, spicy and dense Blaufränkisch and juicy Saint Laurent.
