    With the nature-friendly care of the vineyards and the grapes, ecclesiastical purity requirements are keenly observed. Altar wine must be natural and not amended in any way. Chemical or taste-changing additives are not allowed. Altar wine can be produced only with the permission of the bishop. With an alcohol content between 12% and 12.5%, our Messwein is on the same quality level as the classic Kamptal Grüner Veltliner – fresh, easily approachable and pleasant to drink.

    The yellow-golden wine opens with a fascinating intense and aromatic bouquet with perfectly ripe fruit and refreshing lemon and earthy aromas. Vivacious and round on the palate, this is a gorgeously intense and juicy-aromatic Veltliner with stunning elegance and aromatic persistency. It is nicely bitter and grippy on the finish.
