A splendid and vivacious perlage comes face-to-face with a unique and complex bouquet in which flowery notes, accents of honey and white chocolate as well as dried fruits come together and simultaneously reveal a component of exotic fruits such as pineapple, grapefruit and mango which is rounded off by a spicy, fresh-roasted trace, originating the aging process of the cuvee in wooden barrels.
In the mouth, this sparkling wine, which thanks to its heady structure and a component must still be "tamed" and find its balance or a more leisurely and familiar expression, immediately reveals its penchant to full-bodiedness and intensity. Nonetheless, even in the interim phases, it appears precious, due its freshness and tastefulness as well as due to its robustness, which is so charcteristic of great sparkling wine sorts.
To be enjoyed together with fish-based meals or along with white meat dishes, which can also be rather lavish.

Bright yellow with topaz reflexes. The aroma is complex, reminiscent of acacia and lime blossom. On the palate the wine is full-flavoured, expressive and mellow, elegantly structured, tangy with excellent length. The wine will continue to develop and age for several years.
A lovely, lively perlage is matched by an extravagant and complex bouquet in which flowery notes and accents of honey, white chocolate, and dried fruits all come together. At the same time, components of exotic fruits such as pineapple, grapefruit, and mango become noticeable. The bouquet of the Cuvée Marianna is rounded out by a spicy, freshly roasted note that originates the aging and refining of the still wines in small oak casks. In the mouth, this sparkling wine immediately shows its tendency toward fullness and substance, thanks to its dense structure and a component that still needs to be "tamed" and find its balance. As a result of its freshness, its luxuriant juiciness, and its tastiness, it is an extraordinary product at every phase up to and including its long-lasting and opulent finish.
Grüner Veltliner is a fruity, pleasant fragrant white wine with a greeny to light yellow colour and a delicate aroma of flowers and herbs.
Pale yellow tinged with green; a full but well-integrated wine imbued with honeydew melon, creamy fruit salad and nutty flavours, ample acidity with a delicate underlay of oak and a long, luscious finish. Cellaring potential: 5-8 years
