Description

This unique Austrian winery is located in Kleinhadersdorf west of the municipality of Poysdorf in the Weinviertel wine-growing region in Lower Austria. The vines cover just 20 hectares of vineyards in the best south and south-west locations on loess and clay soils in the Birthal, Bockgärten, Hohenleiten, Kugler and Schneiderberg vineyards.

A classic Grüner Veltliner from the Weinviertel.  Bright yellow with a youthful green tinge. Characteristic “pepper” and aromas of apple, melon, citrus, quince and a hint of peach. The rich fleshy texture is well balanced by the juicy yet lively, fresh acidity and a lovely minerality. This wine is very elegant with a long, round finish.

The south-westerly location and the proximity to the forest give the grapes a cool ripeness with fine fruit and beautiful acidity.

Soil: loess / sand / gravel, south-west facing, near the forest

All Weinrieder wines are Vegan friendly!

… at the same time, the WEINRIEDER shocked me with fruity and
noble sweet Rieslings that can be and still are of world – class quality …
