A dominance of white peach and lime on both the nose and the polished palate could (yet again this vintage!) have come from Riesling. But the wine also benefits from subtly earthy, nutty and invigoratingly incisive contributions of turnip, fresh spinach and cress. It finishes with sappy, resonant persistence, a cyanic glow of peach kernel reinforcing bites of peppery cress. At 13.1 percent alcohol, this represents a significant jump from the corresponding Liebedich cuvée, which relied substantially on fruit from the cool Spitzerbach, but that level is nearly identical to those recorded in 2013 and 2011 and doesn’t deprive us of the estate’s trademark elegance or vivacity.

From the terraced slopes of the "Hochrain" in Wösendorf, the Grüner Veltliner thrives in deep loess soils. Here, the wines develop nutty and spicy tones with yellow fruit aromas. In comparison with the Veltliner from primary rock, the "Hochrain" is a precise example of how much the soil influences the character of the wine.
