- 2018 (organic)
Packen in our brand new wooden box. Limited to 20 pieces
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: In the deep nose the exceptional vintage shows a slender, smoky flavour spectrum underlaid with elegance and limestone spices. Incredibly mineral, structured and completely independent. Air helps bring out aromas reminiscent of salt lemon and pineapple as well as thyme, gooseberries and camphor. Palate fuming minerality, salt flowers and preserved lemons. Great ageing potential!
Soil: 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.
Vinification: After natural fermentation 24 months in big neutral oak casks sur lie; bottled unfiltered

Vision and Added Value
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.
