If you don't eat your meat, you can't have any pudding. How could you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat!??

I have not seen this specific vineyard, but I have seen other Austrian Eisweins. They are very similar to the German ones, perhaps a tad lighter in complexit, but neverthe less, lovely, rich, sweet dessert wines, showing a nice honey tone, and slight minerality to keep it from being cloying. A nice gift from your friend, as eisweins are not inexpensive.

Cheers,

Rob

I personally know nothing of it, and given the amount of work I'm currently putting into Germans I'm afraid to.

Vinarium.com has the following to say about the winery:
