Neuburger Freyheit 2016

Character

Sassy and strutting in a naturally cloudy cloak, the Neuburger Freyheit is exuberantly yeasty and exhibits the yellow-fleshed fruit of apple pie combined with the light fragrance of wild meadow herbs and the enlivening freshness of grapefruit zest. Inspired with intense aroma and a supple texture, this wine is simultaneously mouth filling and refreshing. Bottled unfiltered in full contact with its native yeast, this wine excels with tautness and the enthusiastic courage to be different – freestyle vinophile expressionism in colour and form. Attention: for best enjoyment, shake before pouring!

Origin

The loamy-chalky-sandy sediment is naturally low in fertility and quite meagre, which provides ideal conditions for balanced growth of this rare autochthon grapevine variety. Stems from the Kurzberg vineyard in Mönchhof and limestone soils on the Leithaberg (Leitha Mountains).

Genesis

Bottled with conscientious handcraft and great care throughout the entire life cycle. The vineyards are currently being converted to biodynamic viticulture. Handpicked at the end of September and macerated overnight with the stems and skins. Spontaneous alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. Matured in large oak casks and bottled unfiltered without added sulphur.
