Packed with green fruit and citrus flavors, this finely crafted wine, smooth and crisp at the same time, is fruity, spicy and immediately delicious to drink. A blend of grapes from two vineyards on the rolling plateau above the city of Krems, this wine is aged in stainless steel for eight months, and packed with freshness. The Türk family—vineyard owners since the 18th century—have changed their labels with this 2005 vintage, and the sunburst motif looks as elegant as the wine.
