ZIEREGG

Sauvignon Blanc

 Our icon is just as complex as life itself. Fully ripe citrus fruit, some litchi, and black currant. Firm and mineralic. Fascinating from the very first sip. Citric, salty, and indefinitely long. Attractive when young, irresistible when aged.

Single-vineyard Zieregg is divided into 17 plots of which 13 are planted with Sauvignon Blanc. Characterized by cambisol soil and coralline limestone soil, the old vines grow on a 16 mio. year old coral reef.

The southern faced exposition forms the aroma of this wine in a very distinctive and expressive way. After natural fermentation 24 months maturation “sur lie” in big neutral oak casks sur lie. In the deep nose the exceptional vintage shows a slender, smoky flavour spectrum underlaid with elegance and limestone spices.

Bottled unfiltered. Great ageing potential of 20 years+

Ried Zieregg

Steep vineyard on a sea level of 330 - 490 m with an exposition facing South to Southwest. 15 million years ago the Paratethys Ocean covered South Styria and is remembered by majestic coralline limestone reef. The “Zieregg” vineyard is highly influenced by this distinctive sub soil. It goes without saying that the wines produced on this beautiful site get characteristics from its past as well. Expect profound and elegant wines with a whole lot of structure, distinctiveness and great aging potential.

Our Standards

More than 15 years ago we started taking the first steps towards organic farming. We are now in the phase to convert to biodynamics. A logical step for us and a beginning without end. Every year we learn something new, observe nature and get closer to it bit by bit. We see our business as a form of modern circular economy in which wine is part of an overall concept. Partnerships with horse and cattle farmers have just as much space here as the use of the company’s own forest for energy production. Wine as a way of life.
