The Story

The cool climate and sandy soils of the Kellerberg vineyard site lend its Rieslings a fruity, intensely mineralic quality. Narrow stone terraces necessitate farming and harvesting by hand.

The Kellerberg takes its name from the Kellerschlössl in Dürnstein. The name is therefore also relatively new (1787), and was apparently introduced as a collective name for a multitude of smaller vineyards, two of which are still preserved and are used as sub-vineyards today.

The Kellerberg is composed of Gföhl gneiss, a metamorphic rock that was transformed from a granitic parent rock (plutonite).
Due to the south-east orientation of the Kellerberg, the vineyards faced away from the westerlies during the glaciations. This resulted in deeper loess deposits than on the slopes facing west. Loess can still be found in patches on the Kellerberg. Erosion on the slopes caused mixing of the glacial sediments with Gföhl gneiss material. This is reflected in the denser wines produced on the Kellerberg.

Written Notes

Pale green-yellow. Mandarin orange aroma with a pronounced flinty overlay. Medium to full in body, with a firm acid structure giving definition and a juicy quality to the peach and mandarin orange flavors of this very elegant wine. Conveys a strong impression of vineyard character in its combination of flinty minerality and citrus and stone fruit flavors. This firmly structured, stylish wine offers outstanding potential for further development. Drink from 2009 through 2020.
