Prager belongs to the prestigious Vinea Wachau and vinifies under the strict parameters of their codex. They practice a minimalist approach and use non-interventionist methods in the cellar to produce wines of precision and elegance, moderate levels of alcohol, and clear expression of origin. Their scholarly approach, passion for biodiversity, and brilliant winemaking has elevated Prager to the highest echelon of Austrian wine producers.

"Lavish yet delicate peach, apricot, mandarin and exotic floral aromas. Ripe and rich, yet very finely nuanced, the finish long and really succulent with underlying cool minerality. Drink or hold." 96 points - James Suckling (Oct. 2018)

"Beautifully crafted, showing purity to the jasmine, lime and Bosc pear flavors, accented by hints of sea salt and wet stone. The finish is bright and long. A little grip toward the finish builds up the structure, promising a long life ahead. Should develop nicely. Best from 2021 through 2031. 480 cases made, 40 cases imported." 94 points - AZ (Wine Spectator, May 2019)
