Zieregg Vinothek Reserve
incl. VAT plus shipping costs
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.
With vintage 2018 the grapes come from the parcel „Weisse Wand“ (white wall). Normally the grapes for Ziereggs’ Vinothek Reserve are harvested from parcel „Die Sieben Reihen“ (the seven rows) but it was botted already for the “Parzellenkollektion 2018”.
The vines grow on historic coral reef and blue marl soil. After natural fermentation this wine was matured 30 months „sur lie“ in neutral oak casks. Multi-layered fruit aromas, intense minerality and very long finish on the palate.
Long runner with great ageing potential (20 years +).

Wine is not static.Armin Tement
It evolves, matures and changes over time.
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.
