Hailing from the Weinviertel in Niederösterreich, Zillinger plays by none of the rules!
2020's bottling is roughly 50% Chardonnay from 2019, 25% Riesling from 2013-2019, and 25% Scheurebe from 2017 & 18. Scheurebe whole-cluster pressed and fermented in stainless for elegance, fruit, and freshness. The Chardonnay is fermented on its skins in Georgian qvevri amphorae, bringing structure and body. The Riesling solera is the oldest and contributes the greater character and complexity to this cuvée year after year. All of the wine was aged on the lees. Unfined & Unfiltered. Zero SO2 added.
