Lichtenberger González Muschelkalk Weiss is an organic white wine made with the Grüner Veltliner, Pinot Blanc and Welschriesling varieties in Leithaberg (Burgenland) by the Austrian winery Lichtenberger González.
Wines made on this small estate in the town of Breitenbrunn (between Lake Neusiedl and the Leitha mountains) are the result of a collaboration between two pioneering organic winemakers. On the one hand, Austrian Martin Burgenlander brings knowledge of his land and, on the other, Spaniard Adriana González brings her passion for wine. This results in a limited production of organic wines that follow the course of nature.
The Lichtenberger González Muschelkalk Weiss vineyards are planted in limestone and slate soils, and stand out for being well aligned and well ventilated. In addition, they do not use any chemicals that could destabilise the strain’s natural balance. Once the grape reaches optimum ripeness, it is harvested by hand.
When the Lichtenberger González Muschelkalk Weiss grape reaches the winery, it ferments spontaneously on lees in used barrels with little movement.
Lichtenberger González Muschelkalk Weiss is a white wine that represents the great produce from the banks of Lake Neusiedlersee, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
