"Als Kind ist jeder ein Künstler.
Die Schwierigkeit liegt darin,
als Erwachsener einer zu bleiben."
The 2021 vintage produces fruity and harmonious wines due to the slightly later harvest.
With moderate winter moisture, this year's vegetation year began very changeably. In March and April, very cool and very warm phases alternated, although overall it was too dry. Shooting took place relatively late, towards the end of April. Due to the cool weather in May, the development of the vines was somewhat delayed, which was positive with regard to the risk of late frost. Flowering did not take place until mid-June due to the cool May weather, but proceeded very quickly due to the heat that set in at the beginning of June. As early as June there were many hot days above 30° Celsius and with the hot, moisture-saturated air came massive precipitation with hail and heavy rain. Many wine-growing regions in Austria were badly affected, but thank God our Wagram region was spared. Due to the vigorous weather characterized by humidity and heat, the ripening of the grapes accelerated and was ultimately at the previous year's level. The later ripening with already cooler nights brought not only the corresponding sugar concentrations but also a sufficient level of acidity.
