Riesling Ried Steinhaus 2022
Steinhaus, which translates to "Stonehouse," is the steepest vineyard in Langenlois. It likely derives its name from the ancient stone shelters, the remnants of which can be found scattered throughout the vineyards. This barren slope is characterized by small terraces, some of which were carved into the crystalline rock many centuries ago. The grapevines must delve deep to access water, as they grow on a very rocky soil composed of gneiss and amphibolite, interspersed with quartz. This vineyard gives rise to a distinctively elegant and fruity style of Riesling, marked by a pronounced coolness and a saline minerality.
[1.ÖTW = Classified Vineyard, Erste Lage] [Ried = Austrian Term for single vineyard, same meaning as “Lage”]
