Ried Steinertal 

Steinertal  is an extremely complex location that offers optimal terrain for both Grüner Veltliner and Riesling. The situation turns a little to the southwest, so in the evening always gets some heat, which are relativized by air currents from the north accordingly. The ground thickness varies considerably, as does the temperature within the location. The Riesling is rooted in the highest and barren plots and is a reflection of the natural conditions.

Tasting Notes

“When has this moon-being ever been lovelier? Lovely, and wonderfully inexplicable. Riesling in a kind of phosphorescence. Riesling as a bright little gleam in the dark. Riesling with wind-stung cheeks, Riesling with a cold glow from knowing warm secrets that nobody else knows, Riesling that has mined some origin of silver, Riesling as a keen white riddle, and the last little flick of its cold finger doesn’t quite disguise its warm and ghostly heart.” Terry Theise
