Golden straw yellow. The classic hint of ripe apricot and peach is perceived, along with a marked mineral note. Powerful, with well integrated  juicy  fresh fruit. Very long clean finish.

The vineyard has been housed in a historic manor for 200 years (which was built by and belonged to the Styrian Admont monastery), the estate is farmed organically, the vineyards extend to 14 hectares (34 acres).

The vineyards have deep layers of loess soil on conglomerate. Named after Aeolus the Greek God, Keeper of the Winds, loess is a fine, silty, windblown soil originating from debris left by the action of glaciers during the last ice age. It consists of fine particles of quartz and limestone, and is fertile and mineral rich.
