To underscore the importance of tradition, Abbot Clemens Lashofer blessed the new vintage wines at their debut presentation on November 11th, 2006. The future Göttweiger wines will feature a fruity, dry white wine style.
The sites Gottschelle (Grüner Veltliner) and Silberbichl (Riesling) have an especially promising future. Fritz Miesbauer has set out to create unique wines of great character. Longer maceration time, spontaneous fermentation with natural yeasts, and - when needed - maturation in wood, will through such a stylish development help make the site wines of Stift Göttweig recognizable – and unforgettable.
The varietal breakdown is comprised of Grüner Veltliner, 60%; Riesling, 30%; Chardonnay, 4%; and Pinot Noir, 6%.
