The best of slate, an extraordinary wine with fine aroma fullness. Nuances of fresh Golden-Delicious-apple, delicate pear, pleasant herbal spice, complex, juicy, ripe honeydew melon in the finish, fine acid bow. Great development potential.
From the top of this high hill the citizens of Krems were warned of approaching enemies during historical times (Wachtberg can be roughly translated as “Lookout Mountain”). The extensive southeast-facing terraces of the Wachtberg vineyard site reach up to 400 meters above sea level. The soil is calcareous with a high silt content. The bedrock consists of gneiss with minor schist and is covered by extensive deposits of loess.
