Adriana Gonzales, one half of Lichtenberger-Gonzalez, had the idea of ​​making a white wine like the ones made in her home country of Galicia, namely, a wine made with and aged under a layer of yeast, called 'flor' or a veil. In order to identify a Burgenland grape variety that would work like one of the ones back home for this oxidative, complex style of wine, Welschriesling was quickly identified; the cuvée name reveals how full the barrel was after evaporating wine escaped slowly through the veil: 'tres cuartos' = 'three quarters.' Notes of sourdough bread, quince, lemon balm, Williams pear and pomace, this is a deeply layered and filigreed wine. An exemplary bottle from this young couple's Burgenland domaine.
