– Vintage 2006 –
One of the very best vintages
Very hot in July, plenty of rain in August, and then a marvellously lovely September and October. Diligent working of the soil and attentive canopy-care conserved water in July, which then got utilised by letting the greenery grow in August—these were the technical cornerstones which made optimal ripening of the grapes possible. 2006 produced full-bodied, aromatic and extremely long-lived Chardonnays. The red wines from the vintage 2006 are characterised by extreme ripeness, the intense aromas of dark berries, equipped with a framework of tannins which even considering the wines’ power allows the velvety texture and finesse to show forth. The nobly sweet wines of this vintage are also magnificent; we were blessed with an unbelievable collection of Beerenauslesen and Trockenbeerenauslesen. Looking for a comparison, 2002 comes immediately to mind, also a powerful vintage with classical Burgenland character.
This vintage will certainly be recorded in the annals of our estate as one of the very best.
