“M” means Monumental and is our given name for Grüner Veltliner and Riesling wines with outstanding complexity and concentration. An "M" must stand out clearly from the rest of the “Ried” single-vineyard wines in terms of its structural and taste profile.
With our single-vineyard wines, we aim to capture the character of the soil and the origin into the glass. Our focus with the “M” is richness, boldness, density and concentration, with terroir coming in second.
Our first Grüner Veltliner “M” was created in 1991 as a memorial to Grüner Veltliner: hence a monument. As a rule, the grapes for our “M” are harvested one to two weeks later than our other top vineyard wines. Depending on the vintage and the course of the vegetation, the “M” consists largely of the oldest terraces on the Loibenberg and a meticulous selection of several, very high-quality vineyards at the foothills.
