There are two basic styles of wine at the Estate, of which the majority belongs to the category known as “Steirische Klassik” (“Styrian Classics”). This group also includes new wine, Temento, which has become very popular thanks to its delicately aromatic character: it is a cuvée of Welschriesling and Sauvignon Blanc.
Under the appellation “Steirische Klassik” one finds those wines that are fresh and fruity, with lots of varietal character. They display the typical style of their grape variety (or grape varieties) within the context of the vintage from which they come, they are fairly light in alcohol and, for the most part, they mature in stainless steel tanks. They are the type of wines for which Styria has always been well known, and indeed their style is also in perfect line with current tastes. The “Steirische Klassik” denomination is protected and may only be used by certain wine producers.
Wine are all matured in large wooden casks and some of them - such as the Morillon and (in part) the Sauvignon from the Zieregg vineyard - are even fermented in small oak barrels. The yield varies according to the grape variety and the individual vineyard, but lies between 35 and 55 hecto liters per hectare.
Whether it’s the “Styrian Classic” wines or those from specially selected vineyards, picking is always carried out with great care and attention, and great pains are taken to select only those grapes that are entirely free from gray rot. For each vineyard, between three and five selective harvests is the norm.
