Notes & Pairings

This vineyard is the first impression you get when pulling up to the property. The soil is mostly granite which you can see flicker in the light and results in wines with lower alcohol and a kiss of residual Sugar to balance out the intense acidity. The Kirchensteig was a part of the first 2010 Erste Lage (Frist Growth) classification where for nearly twenty years, the Association of Austrian Traditionsweing├╝ter has been classifying the very best vineyards in Austria. Hand picked, slowly pressed whole bunches, fermented in stainless steel and aged for 2 years on the lees. Still structured and just under 13% alcohol and the nearly 7 g/l RS adds creaminess and balance rather than sweetness.
