Große STK Ried
years aged vines
Rich, complex and full of tension, but also delicate and very playful: nut cream and dried apple rings, dandelion blossoms and dried hay flowers, a hint of marzipan. Very precise on the palate, ripe wild strawberries. Plenty of freshness on the palate after breathing. Retains intensity in finish – lots of staying power. (Arno Bergler, WeinErleben)
Clusters are small and cylindrical and ripe by mid-October. The variety loves skeleton-rich soils. The wines have a slightly nutty to bready flavour, are elegant, aromatic and quite extract-rich.
Careful hand-picking and slow maturation - first 16 months in large traditional wooden barrels, then 12 months in stainless steel tanks. Bottled without filtration.
