Apple, stone fruit and freshness with minerality

This is really a perfect introduction to Austrian Riesling - focused, crisp and zingy

It's a very pretty wine.

From Kamptal you expect citrus, peaches and white flowers, with a lot of dry "licking rocks" minerality. And that is exactly what you get.

First, it is fresh. The young vintages will wake you up, the older vintages mellow and widen a little. But this is an acidity that is bright and pleasant, nothing harsh about it.

The fruit is round and clean, and the minerality makes it feel cleaner yet. The finish is very long especially considering it is a "classic" entry level wine. 

Because it is so focused it is also very flexible - you can drink it as an aperitif well chilled, but it goes with a lot of food. Just make sure you pick dishes that aren't ruined by acidity (not sushi or sashimi, for example)

An obvious match is with classic austrian fare like Schnitzel, loaded canapes or knoedel. Thai flavours, especially the thai salads and coconut based curries, are also a lovely match. As it cuts through fried food fantastically, we love it with savoury fried dishes like scotch eggs or whitebait, though is perhaps too fresh for subtle tempura (unless you pick an older vintage)
Vintage 2019

The 2019 vintage was not as warm as the 2018 so we have more balanced complexity (for a "classic style" Riesling)

The key to this wine is the terroir! Vines exclusively on primary rock soil.


This soil structure offers great minerality. In search of nutrients the vines grow down to 10m below the soil surface.

Combined with the ideal ripening conditions that give wonderful ripe apple and stone fruit flavours this wine is perfectly balanced
