Weingut Machherndl dates back to 1786 and is currently managed by 8th generation owner, Erich Machherndl. Erichs respect for tradition and his land are the heart of the winemaking philosophy at this historic estate. Located just southwest of Krems in Austrias famed Wachau region, the vineyards span approximately 18 acres and are divided into six parcels: Kollmutz, Kollmutz/Steinterrassen, Kollmitz, Hochrain, Steinwand and Maria Feld. Gruner Veltliner, Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Muskateller, Zweigelt and Syrah are planted above the Danube River on sweeping, steep terraces of weathered, gneiss, silicate and brown earth with random islands of light, sandy soils. Erich farms his vines in a sustainable manner no herbicides are used and aggressively manages leaf canopy to coax the best fruit from his vines, some of which are more than 100 years old. In the cellar, Erich uses indigenous yeasts and stainless steel, only Cuvee Anne sees oak and thats in the form of neutral wood barriques. The wines remain on their gross lees for an extended period before bottling. Production remains small as Erich is committed to handcrafting single-vineyard wines made solely from estate grown grapes.
Technical notes
In Wachau, falconers use the wings of dovescalled Federspeilto attract falcons. Named after this tradition, Federspeils must be at least 20 degrees Brix with an alcohol level between 11.5%-12.5%.
