Riesling Ried Kogelberg 2020

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”]

The grapes were selectively harvested by hand in late October and slightly crushed. After some hours of maceration they were gently pressed off with low pressure. Fermented in stainless-steel and matured for several months on the lees. Bottled at high atmospheric pressure during the waxing moon in September 2021.
Wine description
On the nose an ingenious interplay of concentrated fruit, smoky minerality and citrusy freshness, almost dramatic! Ripe vineyard peach, candied lemon-peel, some rosemary. A lot of tension on the palate, ripe citrus fruits, limes and peaches, vibrating acidity, cool and juicy, dancing on the tongue, long and crystalline finish. Enormous aging potential!
