94 POINTS: Falstaff Wine Guide 2019/2020
The Riesling vines of the Steinmassl vineyard grow on primary rock with mica-schist. This geological formation of Austria’s southern forest district possesses as classic and traditional a soil type as one is likely to find anywhere Kamptal, Kremstal or Wachau. The vines are partially trained in the Lyre-system.
Lime & gooseberry dominate the graceful aromatic arc, delicate & bright fruit nuances; this vintage is particularly elegant, with delicate focus & prominent minerality, beautiful fruit of vineyard peach with acidity to match, all in fine balance.
