Stein

Stein is actually a vineyard that Bernhard farms that’s in the Kamptal, specifically the village of Engabrunn.  Bernhard’s village of Feuresbrunn is right on the border of  Kamptal and the Wagram and Bernhard has roots in these Engelbrunn vineyards going back to his Great Grandfather who started farming these sites in 1889 . Stein means stone and as the name would suggest, this vineyard is loess with a lot of gneiss. It might remind you more of the wines from Renner than the heavy loess wines from Rosenberg, which recall the Lamm more than any other site. Long maceration here in the press prior to natural fermentation in steel. 100% estate fruit, Respekt certified Biodynamic.

Review:
Hay flowers and ripe pear notes create a summery expression on the nose. The palate is fluid and juicy but also has a pithy, slightly bitter edge that lends structure and mouthfeel. The finish has a lovely lemon note.

Review:
This offers notes of fresh pears, apples and radishes with a deliciously sweet, floral note that winds around spicy aromas. The palate has a smooth build of such fresh and attractively delicious fruit and carries a sleek, supple run to the finish. Impressive. Drink now.
