Riesling Ried Gaisberg 2019
With its milder microclimate, the exposed Gaisberg is one of the historically most important Riesling vineyards in the Kamptal. A vast variety of metamorphic and crystalline rocks form its soils. On two terraces, our vines dig their roots into Paragneiss. Occasionally there are islands of granite and marble, with shallow covers of loess at the foot of the hill. The concentrated Rieslings of this slope are characterized by their expressive fruit and warm minerality.
[1.ÖTW = Classified Vineyard, Erste Lage (Premier Cru)] [Ried = Austrian Term for single vineyard, same meaning as “Lage”]
