Austria, Kamptal

Another top example of this great grape – Austria’s other star varietal. Racy, citric and very fruity this is really appetising but bold enough for light food – bring on the summer!”

Origin

This primary rock (no or little top soil) Riesling comes mostly from vines less than 15 years old on the Gaisberg und Heiligenstein slopes.In general Austrian Rieslings have more body and spicy notes than their German counterparts, without any loss of vitality.

Grape Variety

100% Riesling.

This is a young vine selection (12-15 years old), with the emphasis on the pure varietal and fruity character of this noble grape. October harvest, followed by fermentation in stainless steel and straight into bottle to capture the essence of the grape.

Producer

This eminent winery has a history spanning nearly 900 years, to 1171 where Cistercian monks of Stift Zwettl were granted their first vineyards at Heiligenstein and Gaisberg. The Domaine has survived wars, economic recessions and even a major fire - and is a testament to its character (and faith) that it has come back each time stronger and more focused.

In 1996, the monks asked Michael and Eva Moosbrugger to take responsibility for both the vineyard estate and winemaking. They jumped at the chance and over the next 20 years they taken the already highly regarded Domaine to new heights

Food Match

Makes a wonderful aperitif – but can also be enjoyed with lighter, spring/summer dishes such as meat, fish and vegetarian salads. Has the body and grip to go well with a crab salad, slice of lime and a touch of chilli and coriander leaves.
