Wine maker notes
The Salzberg is named after the southern slope vineyardsite bearing the same name and that is situated above our winery. The site is remarkable not only because of its ideal sun exposition, but also because of the impressive diversity of its soils - a palette featuringeverything from clay and silt to limestone, sand and gravel. This enables us to ripen our Merlot, Blaufrankisch and Zweigelt to perfection in a relatively small space, especially because each variety grows in its own optimal soil. The grapes were hand harvested in late September. Processed according to the gravity principle, the grapes were fermented in barrels with manual pumping over for 4 - 6 weeks. The wine was then aged for 30 months in 500 liter wooden barrels.

Food pairing
Pair with pasta alla carbonara, pork ribs, or rabbit with thyme.

Producer
Gernot and Heike Heinrich founded their winery in 1990 with 2 ½ acres of vineyard purchased from Gernot”s family. His early work in the family winery, like most of that generation, was purely an agricultural pursuit with goals more related to quantity production. Gernot”s parents had wished their son would choose a different path, because unlike him, they could not see the potential for great wines to be produced from this area. Just over a decade later, the Heinrich”s were recognized with the prestigious Falstaff ”Winemaker of the Year” award. The philosophy at the winery is as transparent and pure as their wines. Their initial challenges were no comparison to the joy and some measure of freedom it gave Gernot & Heike to make a fresh start for the area. That joy and bravery still drives them both today, as they look across Lake Neusiedl to Leithaberg for their next challenge.
