The Spiegel vineyard has loess in addition to gravel and river rock deposits from the old Danube river when it was wild and forming the Wagram. This gives the wine yellow pear flavors, stone fruit, a light pineapple and mango tropical fruit touch, great structure and a very long well balanced finish. The delicate creamy texture and lively, but pleasant, acidity making it a pure joy to drink. Wonderful now, but also has great aging potential.
On the nose it has a beautiful play of perfume, tropical fruit, yeast and celery. The palate brings back the yeasty, savory notes and provides distinct concentration on the slender palate. Lovely, spicy depth and moreishness reign on the salty finish backed by a touch of the classic Gruner white pepper.
