During this time Roman, together with his wife and children, has focused on crafting impeccable wines that reflect authentic Austrian terroir through their depth, minerality and balance.

Elegant and fresh, this estate bottled wine has charming aromas of citrus, fresh wild herbs, and characteristic black pepper. On the palate crisp, lively acidity is balanced with a pronounced juiciness, pepper and herbal notes.
