The vintage year 1992 was quite favorable for wine.Following a mild winter, an early start of vegetation and good flowering, the summer was hot and dry. The result was a harvest with few volume but wonderfully high quality and soft acidity. The gold with greenish tints color announce a great matured Gruner Veltliner; multi-faceted on the palate: dried fruits, with delicate hints of apple, honeydew melon, caramel; a spicy wine with a pleasant play of acidity; delightful finish, dry.
The illustrious Kirchmayr family has been cellaring extraordinary vintages from their top single vineyard wines for decades. The remarkable project of conveying traditional fruit sourced from the same family growers for over 100 years has passed over the generations into the hands of Andreas and his sister Christina Kirchmayr. The cellar is actually located on the property of the Baroque monastery Stift Seitenstetten in the Fruit District which is located west of the Wachau by 60 miles. Fruit is sourced from various regions such as the Wachau, Kamptal, Weinviertel (North of Vienna), and Lake Neusiedl, where relationships and trust have matured from contracts dating back to the 1890s. These represent some of the best vineyards for each region throughout all of Austria. All Solist series wines are fermented, traditionally, in 500-1000 Liter casks and left for long lees contacts and late bottling with the idea that they will be cared for over 10-20 years, recorked when necessary and are all hand labeled and numbered.
