Riesling, Klassik 2016
Country of origine: Austria
Growing area: Wagram
Village: Fels am Wagram
Appelation: First terraces on the foot of the Wagram hillside, altitude 200-220m
Type of soil: Red gravel soil with some cover of Loess, a former riverbed of Danube River.
Viticulture: Our goal is sustainable viticulture by using no herbicides since 25 years, no usage of insecticides since a couple of years. Plant protection against pests is reduced to the absolute minimum required. Due to the advantage of Loess terroir we don’t need to irrigate vines, green covering of the soil keeps it healthy and requires no fertilizers. Harvesting is only done by hand with strictly grape selection, only the best fruit is used for our top wines.
Winemaking: We use only healthy grapes without any Botrytis. After destemming and skin contact for around 8 hours, pressing is done by pneumatic press. The juice can settle then for about 12 hours, only the clear juice is used for fermentation with only natural yeast in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Racked and cleared after a two month maturation on fine lees, bottling time is February of next year.

Ageing potential: Enjoy fresh, within about 3 years.
