Name story: Ortolan is named for the songbird found in Weinviertel's vineyards whose melody is said to have inspired Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. Vineyards and winemaking: Vineyards at the foot of the Falkenstein cliffs. Rich soil mixed with weathered shell limestone over a layer of moisture-retaining clay. Hand-picked grapes and slow, temperature-controlled fermentation.
