Notes sourced from the producer.
With over 550 years of history, Weingut Stadt Krems is one of the oldest wine-producers in Austria, and even in the whole Europe. Since July, 2003 Weingut Stadt Krems is managed by a young, innovative team directed by Fritz Miesbauer. The flagships of Stadt Krems are Riesling and Grüner Veltliner (over 90 %). All wines are sealed with a vino-lok. Weingut Stadt Krems cultivates 31 hectares of vineyards on its own estate, which are exclusively on the best terraced locations of the city of Krems. The vineyards to the east of the city are made up of loess soil. In the Weinzierlberg, Sandgrube and Gebling vineyards Riesling, Pinot Blanc und Chardonnay are grown in addition to the predominant variety Grüner Veltliner. To the west of the city, bordering on the winegrowing area Wachau, the landscape is mainly formed of small terraces on steep mountain slopes of gneiss and slate. This is where the vineyards of Pfaffenberg, Grillenparz, Wachtberg, Kögl and Kremsleiten are located, where Grüner Veltliner and, above all, Riesling are grown.
The grapes for this wine were harvested at beginning November 2007. They were strictly selected. After they were destemmed and pressed carefully, the must was fermented under controlled temperature in a stainless steel tank.
