The nose exudes scents of biscuit, candied fruit, baked apple, pepper and nuts. An elegant palate with notes of pink grapefruit and pulses; firm and full of tension, balanced and juicy. A creamy and long finish with a good decade-long potential.

It’s warm in the Schenkenbichl. Not only during the day.  Often long into the night, the stone walls of the terraces gradually release into the vineyards the heat that was captured from the daytime sun. Potentially cold northern winds are held back by a small acacia forest, so that the grapes often have a ripening delay of one to two weeks.

The Schenkenbichl is located in the middle and lower parts of the Veltliner territory. Amphibolite provides the mineral subsoil for the vines in the west; in the east, it’s loess that allows the vines to root deeply. The bit of chalk makes a fine contribution to the texture of the wines.

The location

Each wine region has its own insider tips: Vineyard sites that have been producing great wines for centuries, yet are practicially unrecognised by anyone except for the local residents and insiders who drink the wines.

The Schenkenbichl belongs to this category. Viticulture on its terraces has been documented since the early 15th century. The first documents about the Schenkenbichl date back to 1402, when the vineyard already bore the name it still has today; this likely derives from a tavern (“Schenke”) at the foot of a slope (a so-called Bühel → Bichl).

The ground

Schenkenbichl Erste Lage has so much to offer, above all, geologically. Paragneiss. Limestone. Brown earth. And especially in our four terraces, amphibolites, over which somewhat thick layers of loess have settled. The Schenkenbichl is a south-facing vineyard site with some spots inclined to the east. In summer, a warm wind blows through the vines and helps ensure that the grapes will ripen calmly until late autumn and achieve their balance.
