Ried Steinmassl

Riesling

2022

Kamptal DAC, Erste Lage ÖTW

Sparkling clean, ‘grapy’-zesty Riesling bouquet including notes of juniper & Braeburn apples, fresh and dry, juicy though still a bit reduced in its first years, red-berry aromas on the palate, super straight, one would like to say ‘slim fit’ with a fragrant touch of fruity sweetness before the long finish.

The vines are partially trained in the Lyre-system. The vine bifurcates in a way that the branches seem to reach to the heavens like sun-worshippers. This method doubles canopy exposure and favors aeration which improves photosynthesis and prevents dreaded fungus diseases.

The 2022 vintage
Conditions in September 2022, right at the beginning of harvest, seemed relatively favourable for the Kamptal vintners: With the exception of a dry first quarter, our region had been spoiled with well-distributed rainfalls as well as many sunny hours. Our vineyards were looking healthy and still full of vitality. There had hardly been any frost and we only had suffered minor hail damage on Käferberg and Lamm, which happened early in summer and thus reduced the quantity but not the quality of the grapes. Ripeness was about a week ahead of 2021, but did start still a good deal later than in warm years such as 2017, 2018 and 2019. The...

Maturation

The meager, stony soil provides small berries with concentrated flavor. As far as Riesling is concerned, an important part of the flavor is stored in the grape skins and is set free only by extremely slow pressing of up to 8 hours duration or prolonged skin contact over night.

Fermentation is done in stainless steel & big, used oak barrels and maturation is completed on 5-10% of the lees.

Food pairing recommendation

All types of starters, seafood, marinated, smoked or grilled fish, fried chicken or Schnitzel; white meats, a good alternative to red wine in combination with roast fat duck; matches with all sorts of Pan Asian cuisine.
