We should call this wine "believe in yourself". They almost didn't bottle the first vintage they tried, weren't sure it'd be good enough. A year later it was selected amongst the best in Austria, one of the Salon wines. It's been that good ever since.

Magic!
It's a fantastic eiswein
a fresh but rich sweet wine that is extremely easy drinking

Lovers of Grüner Veltliner (a very sensible group) will be in seventh heaven with this Eiswein. Far from sickly and cloying, this has perfect balance. The citrus acidity cuts through any possible syrupiness and elevates this wine above the norm. Chill it down for a fresh, clean delight. It goes wonderfully with pâté and as an accompaniment to sweet courses, but I prefer it as a course in its own right!

When in Austria..... Viennese Apfelstrudel!
Apple strudel and sweet pastry dishes. Blue cheese, or foie gras. Also, pour it over a really good ice cream.
Tasting Notes

A great balance of sweetness and acidity which is the signature mark of a great dessert wine. 

Vintage 2019

Because of 2020, haven't tasted it yet - will taste it when it arrives. I trust Ralph though, it'll be good.

Vintage 2016

This is cleaner and lighter than the 2013. The cinder toffee is gone and replaced with fantastic tropical and citrus fruits. The balance is, once again, perfect. I didn't think that they could better the 2013 but, with this wine, they have. It is altogether sophisticated and accessible and I would put it up against many far more expensive and well-known sweet wines.

Vintage 2013

If you ever loved the taste of cinder toffee then this is the wine for you!

Brilliant golden yellow, cinder toffee with a zingy touch of citrus to lift it so it is never cloying. If you've had Harrogate toffee it might give you an idea
