sourced from both sides of the Neusiedler See (Lake Neusiedl). On the west side, vines are rooted in the limestone and schist of the Leithaberg (Leitha Mountains) slopes – on the east side of the lake vines in the gravelly Parndorfer Platte (Parndorfer Plain) and humus-rich Heideboden.

from the producer: "While the Naked White initially comes along on tiptoe in the nose, it perches on the palate putting the whole foot into play... Its main protagonists, Weissburgunder & Chardonnay, give it a creamy texture, while the Welschriesling happily overcomes any drinking resistance and throws a pinch of lemon zest into the glass. Unadulterated, straightforward & precise. Its finely woven weightless concentration and its perky, unfiltered charm make for 750 millilitres that are easily drunk by a round of four in as many seconds. That’s twelve and a half minutes. For best enjoyment, shake before you pour."
