In our vineyards in the southwestern part of the Langenloiser Loiserberg, Riesling vines are rooted in mica slate soils. The grapes for this Spätlese were harvested by hand on October 10, 2019.
The steep and meager terraces of the Loiserberg provide the best conditions for this residually sweet, dense and mineral-driven Riesling with aromatic ripeness and finesse as well as lively fruit-acid balance.
Making of the wine
The grapes were selectively harvested by hand. The mash was then macerated for several hours to extract the profound aromas. The naturally sedimented must then fermented in a 1000-liter wooden barrel made of local oak with natural yeasts. We want to intervene as little as possible in the evolution of the wine and give the wines the time to develop as independently as possible.
