The Czerny family has been working this land, about 50 miles west of Vienna on the Danube River, and winery for over 250 years. Hans Czerny, who took over from his father Johann in 1987, is extremely committed to practicing minimal intervention in the vineyards and in the cellar. Additionally, he switched to organic production with the 2003 vintage as his first “certified organic” harvest; and has embraced biodynamics, earning certification by the Demeter society. Yellowish green, with nose of apples and pineapples. Mineral and smoky components, typical for the Fumberg loss. Very elegant and well-balanced, with spicy, lingering finish.
