"The grapes of this Riesling were harvested in the last week of October 2011. After they were destemmed and pressed carefully, the must was fermented under controlled temperature in a stainless steel tank. The wine has a typical taste of minerals. The bouquet reminds on apricots and peaches. It?s a transparent and well structure wine. The Riesling is very fruity and easy to drink, the classic Riesling from Kremstal. You can drink the wine within the first three years, but you can also store this wine for ten years. This Riesling is an ideal partner for smoked starters, fried fish and all kinds of baked meals." - Winemaker's Notes
Besides a pronounced fruity flavour and the typical classic taste of the varieties, digestibility is the main objective of Weingut Stadt Krems. The wines are intended to be sipped with pleasure, as a perfect accompaniment to meals, and to have nerve and vivacity even after several years of ageing. The grapes at Weingut Stadt Krems are handpicked and carefully selected through several passes of harvesting. The vinification process is performed with great care, and the wine is aged in stainless steel containers. Wine from classified sites is picked very late with long yeast contact. The wines are absolutely natural, no additives are used.
