Pinots from the Leithaberg

The soils of the Leithaberg are dominated by seashell limestone and glittery mica schist. The two soil types alternate, particularly on the slopes around Donnerskirchen, so that these sites are prime examples of the complexity and unique character to be found in the region.  

The dynamic tension in these millennia-old natural boundaries between soil types in the Leitha mountain range (the Leithagebirge) finds its ultimate expression in wines of great depth and complexity.

Fortunately these geological and climatic conditions cannot be influenced by human activity. They are the region’s great treasure – a treasure that we must look after and preserve.

The vines that have been established on these sites back into the mists of time belong to the Pinot family. So, with a certain sense of humility before the caprices of nature, and a desire to fall in with the requirements of the natural environment, we have made it our business to grow Pinots. The unique conditions on the Leithaberg enable us to produce world-class Pinots with elegant fruit, finesse and fine mineral depth. We have no desire to make pseudo-Burgundies. We want to make Pinots from the Leithaberg!

The taste is one of yellow bananas combined with creaminess, which is carried perfectly by the acidity. The robust and extremely limestone-rich soil yields a Grauburgunder that offers intense aromas and a distinctive minerality.
