Vintage 2013

★★★★☆


“Hot summer and cold winters do not bring us any bad times.” 

–  unknown

 

The winter and summer were more distinctive than usual in 2013. A very long winter that was also considered to be the winter with the most snowfall in its history in some regions was followed by a cool and wet spring. These weather conditions were the setting for a late bud burst. The flowering brought a low fruit set and revealed that it would be a vintage with a low yield. Mid of June came the shift – warm, dry and stable weather – 40 heat days with temperatures surpassing the 30°C mark – 9 weeks without any rainfall. In August a new record for the hottest day was broken in Austria – these extreme weather patterns troubled the vines. Finally, the much-needed rainfalls came at the end of August and the cooling down for Humans and plants was very welcome. Harvest began on the 14th of September and brought ripe and healthy grapes.

Conclusion: the extreme weather conditions demanded everything from our vines yet also brought as wines full of character. We were able to finish the year with a great Trockenbeerenauslese from the Scheurebe grape variety and even small amounts of Icewine harvested in January of 2014.
