The Altenberg Vineyard is on the slopes to the north of Lake Neusiedlersee. With its great exposure, it can produce a rich, structured wine like this that offers aging potential. Even at this stage, it feels complete, offering a balanced mix of tannins, black plum and peppered blackberry notes. Age for 3–4 years.
