Terroir

The very chalky soils of the Traisental challenge the vines to work their roots down into the rocks and impart a highly individual profile to the wines, including a full body and firm structure. Minerality functions as a flavour carrier, supporting the acidity structure and giving the wines a long ageing potential.
