2016 Geyerhof Riesling Goldberg Erste Lage 1ÖTW
Beautiful organic Riesling from the Kremstal in Niederösterreich, Austria's most important wine region. The Kremstal area is located on both sides of the Danube, around the city of Krems. Producer of this delightful Riesling is the Geyerhof quality winery whose vineyards lie on the south side of the Danube below the famous Göttweig monastery. Wine is the focus of daily life on Geyerhof. Joy and respect for life determine the actions and method.
The winery was first mentioned in the municipality archives in the 12th century and has been in the family's hands since the 16th century. Ilse and Josef Maier have passionately cultivated 23 hectares of vineyards here since 1988. Maria & Josef, the following generations, have joined the family business since 2015. Mase and her son make organic wines that are juicy and friendly at Geyerhof in Kremstal.
This Riesling Goldberg is complex on the nose with ripe tropical fruit, citrus, honey and mint. The wine also has a light sweetness, elegant acids and a huge aftertaste. Drunk young, this Riesling Goldberg is charming and shy. However, storing this wine for a few years is very beneficial! The wine is then a firework of ripe fruit with a hint of honey, ripe apricots, melon and fine notes of meadow herbs, delicate acids and rich in extract; juicy, full of finesse with a great long finish. This wine can be widely used at the table with most fish and seafood dishes, white meat, spicy Eastern dishes and with a sweet dessert.
The Goldberg vineyards are located on southern slopes with a unique, very warm microclimate. The vines are more than 60 years old. The grapes are harvested manually at the end of October, pressed with the whole bunch, after which natural fermentation takes place very slowly in stainless steel tanks. Geyerhof always chooses to release the wines later, among other things because their natural fermentation often proceeds slowly and the wines therefore do not present so well the year after harvest. 2016 Was a wet year in Kremstal until the beginning of August. A huge challenge, especially if you work organically! The moderate flowering was a blessing in the end: the limited number of racemes matured well in August and September and could be brought in well up to October. The limited quantities ensured nice concentration, the cool vintage for elegance and fineness and the necessary acids to be able to mature.
