Riesling “Steinberg”

Originating in Germany in the 1400s, Riesling is hailed the world over as one of the premier white grape varieties. The 2nd most-planted white grape in Austria, Riesling gives a unique interpretation of Wien’s calcareous limestone and clay soils. Sensitive and demanding in the vineyard due to its late ripening and susceptibility to different kinds of rot, winemakers nevertheless prize Riesling for its terroir-expressiveness, a quality that shines especially when grown in Austria’s unique Kremstal. Riesling’s acidity and structure, combined with its typical flavor profile of  mineralic fruit, make it a supremely versatile food wine.

The biodynamically farmed “Steinberg” vineyard in Grinzig is composed of a mixture of chalky limestone and clay, resulting in a Riesling with elegant and mature fruit aromas and vibrant, fresh acidity.
