Riesling Ried Kogelberg 2019

Kogelberg forms the northernmost tip of Kamptals 'Erste Lage' vineyards. It lies north of the village of Zöbing, where the narrow river valley opens up towards the Langenlois basin. At this point we find a more pronounced climatic influence of the high Waldviertel plateau, as cooling air currents push in at dusk. This creates exciting microclimatic conditions. The vines grow on bronze-colored mica schist, a crystalline rock formation. It is a particularly cool-fruited and dark-mineral character that marks the Riesling wines of this slope.
[1.ÖTW = Classified Vineyard, Erste Lage (Premier Cru)] [Ried = Austrian Term for single vineyard, same meaning as “Lage”]
