Weingut Sighardt Donabaum, located in Spitz, was first mentioned in the 12th century and has been family-owned since 1833. Their 11 ha of vineyards, 80% of which are terraced vineyards on weather-beaten gneiss and granite (primary rock soil), are in the best locations of the region and are extremely difficult to work. Each vineyard is influenced by a different micro-climate. Sighardt Donabaum has been awarded many prizes at numerous national and international events. They produce pure varietal correct wines that are a classic expression of place & variety.
The fully-ripe grapes, which mature on the steep south-facing hills of Spitzergraben, are harvested manually. The unique climate in this part of Wachau –great temperature differences between day and night –lends the wine a special aroma. The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed, afterward fermented varietally, and carefully vinified. Vinification and storage are done exclusively in stainless steel tanks according to the latest findings in modern cellar technology.
Tasting Notes:White Wine. 100% Grüner Veltliner.This smart, varietal Grüner Veltliner is fruity with a Christmas pear, grapefruit, and pomegranate. Quite meaty on the palate, lots of pome fruit, lemon peel, and the typical herb piquancy. The vibrant acidity makes it extremely drinkable.
