    special Cuvée. A Cuvée that was blended from vintages of the past 50 years of the estate. This is possible because the monks
    own a library back to the 1940’s and donated some significant stock for this ‘once in a lifetime’ project.

    With vintage 2020 the estate is celebrating the 850 vintage since 1171. During the past three years a new cask cellar has been constructed and will be officially inaugurated by the abbot of the monastery. To celebrate the tradition and culture of 850 years of winemaking accordingly, the Cellar-Master of the estate created a very special Cuvée. A Cuvée that was blended from vintages of the past 50 years of the estate. This is possible because the monks own a library back to the 1940's and donated some significantstock for this 'once in a lifetime' project. The library‘s bottles were cleaned, opened and each bottle was tasted on its enjoyability. The lots from the library were emptied into specific containers and later blended by the cellar-master into oakcasks. It takes decades to obtain the mastery of how to blend the wines of the Danube area. The specific soils, the different grape varieties ask for expertise and insight to understand how such a Cuvée can be put together. Step by step the final blend was developed by numerous tastings and trials. At the end the whole team is convinced to have created a true Masterpiece of viticultural experience that is related to the rich history andtradition of the estate.

    ANDREAS LARSSON - TASTED by Andreas Larsson: rating 97
    Light golden colour. Pure and intense nose offering fresh stone fruit, sweet citrus, some lees derived creamy notes, fine oak, toasted hints and plenty of fine spice. The palate is warm and unctruous yet remaining fresh with crunchy and vigorous fruit, fine extract and very mild tannin contributing to structure and length, very long with great depth, purity and style.
    JAMES SUCKLING: score 99
    Incredibly deep and complex, this has all the mystery of great white wines that have matured for decades in the bottle, but is still lively. Delicate candied-citrus, baked-apple and honeycomb aromas, but the more you smell this the more you find in it! Sensational concentration and finesse through the long, filigree finish. This limited-production blend includes wines from 31 vintages over five decades, going back to 1970. There are also 9 grape varieties in there, gruner veltliner and riesling forming the base.
    ROBERT PARKER - The Wine Advocate, 12/21 week 2: rating 98 Intensely golden-yellow in color, the NV Tradition Heritage Cuvée 50 Years Edition 850 blends several grape varieties and a wide range of vintages from the last 50 years, starting with the 1970 vintage. The nose opens precise, lean and fresh, with bright and spicy fruit and flinty notes. On the palate, this treasure is crystalline, tight, reductive and very elegant, with a long and tensioned finish. This Jubilee edition reveals remarkable finesse and grip and represents the historical spirit and substance of the castle. Due to the matured wines from the 1970s and 1980s, this is a leaner, more filigreed style than the newer assemblages that contain only barrel-stored reserve wines from the Michael Moosbrugger era. The wine is doubtlessly very impressive. To create the blend, many bottles of the wine library were opened, tasted and decanted into small vessels that were then, little by little, blended into a cuvée. "It demands a clarity of vision and long years of experience with the wines of the Danube River region to compose a cuvée of this style," says Moosbrugger. "The different soils and the various grape varieties demand an understanding of their nature and their functionality in a blend, in order to create a wine like this."
