WINE ENTHUSIAST: Rating 94
There is something of the summer meadow about this—the scent of yarrow combines with sun-ripened stone fruit.

Ried (single vineyard, cru) Lamm is situated on the southeast slope of the Heiligenstein. Beside erosion material from Heiligenstein (perm, red siltstone) a high proportion of clay can be found. The vineyard is south-facing and very well exposed. This helps develop the grapes for a wine that, after maturation in traditional double-foudre casks from local forest of Manhartsberg, result in a wine with power and elegance.
