Ried Spiegel

This is a south facing site, high elevation site. The consistently high extract from this site is due to the deep roots of the vine, intensity and spiciness of its southern exposure. The soils here are a mix of deep, chlky loess and red gravel – a sort of mix of the two soil types from Rosenberg and Stein.

Review:
Another very sophisticated, new-style gruner veltliner that is full of flavor, but only mid-weight and very clean with some positive tannins supporting the mineral finish. Only just beginning to go through its paces. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
