Ried Supperin

Off the old city wall of Dürnstein like a veranda glancing at the river Danube the unique position of this site, together with the soil contenting weathered sediments of primary rock, generates a singular expression of Grüner Veltliner: never fruity but always spicy and salty, equipped with matchless acidity. This wine stays in big oak casks on the yeast and lees till shortly before bottling. Patience and experience are appropriate with this wine and will be amply rewarded after some years of maturating – one of our signature wines!

Grape variety: 100% Grüner Veltliner
Age of vines: ∼40-80 years
Harvest: by hand beginning of October
Fermentation and maturation: 8-10 months in big oak casks (9-15 hl)
Bottling: late summer (August)
Alcohol: 13-13,5% Vol

Ried Kellerberg

The Cru Dürnsteiner Kellerberg is the paragon for a top single vineyard in the Wachau region. Vines are growing on south-eats facing terraces made of natural stones with soils of weathered Gneiss and some layers of Loess on the bottom of the slope. A long vegetation period caused by the cool airflow in the nights is inducing a very late harvest. This particular kind of microclimate is responsible for unique wines combining refinement and power in their own inimitable way. Often the wines are at once smoky-hedonic and delicate-savoury.

Grape variety: 100% Grüner Veltliner
Age of vines: ∼25-35 years
Harvest: by hand end of October/ beginning of November
Fermentation and maturation: 10 months in big oak casks (6-15hl)

Ried Pfaffenberg
Alte Reben

A more than 65 years old tiny parcel, quite unusually planted with Grüner Veltliner, is producing this wine. The soils are barren and composed of crystalline primary rock dominated by Gneiss and Mica schist. The choice of grape variety is quite unusual, but the vines are old and the result therefore demanding and full of character: a mineral, unusual one of a kind for advanced savourer.

FASS N° 43

The grapes for this quite another kind of reading the grape variety Grüner Veltliner are coming from the sites Kellerberg, Wunderburg and Supperin. The must without sedimentation is fermenting in 600 l barrels of Austrian oak and stay there for 20-24 months on the lees. After racking and sedimentation this wine is bottled unfiltered. On the first glance the result is a cosmopolitan wine, which one is showing his identity in a very distinct way: smoky-generous with some tight minerality and enormous length.
