The history of the wine Riesling "Tradition" dates back to the tasting ceremony Grüner Veltliner in the ballroom of the castle Gobelsburg in 1999. Journalists covering the event, asked Michael Moosbruggera which had the taste of wine Gobelsburg in the beginning. Answer is not found, the question stuck in my head and sent a search and study of the methods and practices of those years. Michael Moosbrugger had many conversations with senior abbot of the Monastery Fr.. Bertradom, who was responsible for the process of making wine in the "old days." Inspired by exploring the treasures of invaluable experience and ancient traditions, Michael decided to resurrect the true nature of winemaking, reigned for centuries in these cellars.
When you create a Riesling "Tradison" gentle pressing grapes passes in a few movements, then, except for refining stage, the wine must be placed in oak barrels from the Austrian volume of 25 hectoliters. The process of primary fermentation takes place spontaneously, without temperature control. After the next stage of fermentation, the wine was decanted three times to achieve absolute transparency. Before bottling the wine is aged in oak barrels for 18 months. The wine has an enviable future - only with time taste better. Storage capacity of wine is 14 years.
