Erste STK Ried
years aged vines
Fleshy yellow peaches, a little bread seasoning, incredibly rich. Reminiscent of alpine herbs with plenty of mint on the palate. Complex, deep spice with a wonderful juiciness characterized by ripe grapes. A wine with a great future! (Arno Bergler, WeinErleben)
Among the oldest grape varieties cultivated on earth. Susceptible to bunch rot and late-maturing, it needs warm and frost-free conditions. Clusters are medium-sized, elongated and winged, to double.
Harvesting and grape selection by hand, short maceration period, gentle pressing, spontaneous fermentation (half in wooden barrels, half in stainless steel tanks) and a further 6 months’ maturation on fine lees in stainless steel tanks.
ground / cultivation area
Lime-free loamy sands with gravel inclusions sedimented in a riverbed.
Recommended with fine fish and white poultry, but also white asparagus; a very special treat when enjoyed on its own.
