Riesling Ried Loibenberg Smaragd, Alzinger
The south-facing terraces of the Loibenberg are considered the warmest of the Wachau. This statement, however, falls short and leaves out a lot of factors that affect the wines. Some vines lie between the first terraces on the slope foot and the last on the summit-a good 200 meter difference. In addition, many vineyards are in the shadow of protective forests beyond also open trenches to the north, whose air, especially at night, the climate cool noticeably. The Riesling is rooted in barren and shallow soils, which promote a tighter style.
