Description

97 points James Suckling
"A strikingly pure and poised Riesling that has such fresh and lively mineral presence with pristine peaches, pears and hints of citrus on the nose and palate. The allure here is the refined structure and texture."

96 points Wine Enthusiast
"A pure note of ripe Mirabelle is underlined by bright, fresh lemon notes. The lemon and Mirabelle plum combo, that combination of zestiness and ripe, generous juiciness also continues on the concentrated palate. A sense of something light-footed and graceful informs the sinuous body, despite its toned muscle and linearity, drawing you in towards that irresistible, stony citrus rind core." *Cellar Selection*

Vinous Reverie Notes
The Kellerberg is composed of Gföhl gneiss, a metamorphic rock that was transformed from a granitic parent rock. Due to the south-east orientation of the Kellerberg, the vineyards faced away from the westerlies during the glaciations. This resulted in deeper loess deposits than on the slopes facing west. Loess can still be found in patches on the Kellerberg. Erosion on the slopes caused mixing of the glacial sediments with Gföhl gneiss material. This is reflected in the denser wines produced on the Kellerberg
