The Göttweiger Messwein, or Altar wine, has been an institution in this Benedictine monastery, for centuries. Grüner Veltliner and Rosé (from Pinot Noir) are vinified as light, dry wines. From the nature-friendly cultivation of the vineyards to the care and processing of the grapes and wine, the „Reinheitsgebot”, or purity law, of the church must be obeyed. Messwein cannot be produced without the permission of the bishop, and it must be only natural and unaltered. With 12,0 % alcohol (this may vary, depending on the vintage) Messwein is the lightest wine – very easy and drinkable.
Dry, fruity and light with classic – though subtle – Veltliner spice. Animated in the nose; multilayered with notes of citrus fruit, red apple and rosewood. Fresh and elegant on the palate; expressive, with good length.
Red fruit - raspberry, wild strawberry, morello cherry –with subtle spice tones. The palate reflects balance between fruit and acidity. A "winy" rosé, fresh and fruity!
