Riesling Ried Gaisberg 2017
Gaisberg is regarded one of the historically most relevant Riesling vineyards in the Kamptal region. Our vines grow on two terraces on metamorphic and crystalline rock, marmor and paragneis with islands of granite. The elegant Rieslings of this cru express the feminine side of Riesling. Fine and smooth contures in a garden full of citrus fruits.

Wine description
Open and inviting from the very beginning, orange zest, papayas, red & juicy peaches, some lemongrass; in the middle a hint of extract-sweetness, in the background a firm acidity that adds a lot of fruity tension; contured, lively and lush with a long lasting finish. - Vinaria 2018/19
