Karl Fritsch believes that quality originates in the vineyard. He learned this philosophy from his father, Karl Fritsch, Sr., who had been carefully cultivating the foliage and thinning out the grapes (yield minimization) since the 1970’s. After graduating from the Krems School of Viniculture, Karl Fritsch, Jr. became the winemaker at this family's estate. 

The Fritsch estate is situated in the Donauland wine region, about 50 km northwest of Vienna, along the Danube River. During ancient times, powerful winds blew fine particles of sand, creating a huge barrier of loess soil, with pockets of loam and gravel under the surface – which became the hills of the Wagram. 

More than a third of Fritsch’s 17 hectares of vineyards is planted with Grüner Veltliner (Schlossberg, Steinberg), which requires very mature grapes and is vinified separately, according to the location of the site. The grapes are estate grown, and, as of vintage 2006, the winemaking is following biodynamic rules and methods.  Fritsch is also a member of Respekt. All Fritsch wines shine with fruit and finesse, the sign of a quality grower. This Steinberg Gruner is grown in slate and granite soils.

This has a pure, fresh and aromatic bouquet of ripe white fruits, lemon peel and lime leaf intertwined with flinty-crystalline slate notes. Smooth and polished on the palate yet also fresh and crisp with a mouthwatering mineral grip, this is a medium-bodied and refreshing Veltliner with a crisp, fine fruit character and lovely cool character.
