Climate: The climate in Leutschach with moderate rainfall is warm and mostly free of fog. It is influenced by the cool, declining winds of the western Koralpe. This results in cool nights that lead to large temperature differences between day and night, which favors fruity wines
Ground: Leutschach lies from geological point of view in the southwest Styrian sea basin. Here some 16 million years ago, up to several thousand meters thick, marine deposits were formed. These fine marine sediments are called “Leutschacher Schlier” in geology. These are clayey fine-sandy, mostly gray-green colored, calcareous clay marl to clay shale with sand deposits. These calcareous marl soils are called “Opok”.
Maturation: 12 months in traditional large wooden oak casks
