Light greenish yellow, subtle mineral tones with a soft, stone-fruit aroma. Fully ripened, well structured with refined sweetness of fruit on the palate, a touch of black pepper and a delicate, creamy finish.
Austria's wonder grape puts in another star turn. Now resplendent in bright green livery, the Friendly GV delivers its customary and bewildering array of delicious flavours; peach, apple, pepper, you name it, this wine's got it!

This style of wine is called “Orange Wine”, due to the maceration over several weeks with the grape skins and a certain amount of grape stems. Fermentation takes place in the mash, as with red wines. This imparts the wine its unusual orange colour and taste. The Gräfin is rich in tannin but still soft, full and shows a full spectrum of aromas. This unconventional wine invigorates in a special way body and soul.
This wine is harvested by hand and much care is taken with the selection of grapes to go into the wine. The fermentation of this wine is spontaneous as there are no artificial yeasts added and this process lasts for 2-4 weeks with the grape skins and certain amount of stems remaining in contact with the must in large wooden vats and casks. The process begins with a gentle pressing of the grapes over a period of 4 hours. No additives or filtering of the must is allowed and there is minimal use of sulphur. The Gräfin is aged for 2 years in wooden casks. The wine is not filtered prior to bottling. Biodynamic principles are practiced in both the vineyard and the cellar.
