"M" stands for "monumental" and serves to signify our Grüner Veltliner Smaragd® of exceptional complexity and concentration. The first gruner to be awarded this honor, because it presented itself like a landmark, or simply a monument, was one of the 1991 vintage. The grapes for "M" are usually harvested two to three weeks after the fruit for the vineyard-designated wines. Depending on the vintage and growing season, the major portion of "M" is usually sourced from Loibnerberg terraces and a selection of the best fruit from several premium sites. "M" is always a mystical wine, exhibiting opulence and concise minerality.
