2015

Single-vineyard Zieregg is divided into meanwhile 17 plots. This wine grows on the plots “Steilriegel (oberer)“ and “Karmeliten Berg (Brunnenhaus)”. Characterized by deep minerality the old vines grow on a 16 million year old coral reef. Cool winds also favour the aromatic expression of the grapes.

To allow the whole complexity of the single-vineyard and variety to be reflected in the bottle, a 20 month ageing process in neutral oak barrels is crucial.

Exceptional vintage with inspiring length.

We recommend to decant 1-2 hours before serving.

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.
