Region: Kamptal, Lower Austria, Austria Grape(s): Riesling Winemaker: Karl Steininger Drinks Best: Now - 2 Years
Based in Langenlois in the heart of the Kamptal appellation in eastern Austria, Karl Steininger is the patriarch of his family run estate. From their own vineyards, Karl and his family are not only well-known for their single varietal Sekts, but also for several artfully crafted still wines. This Riesling from their vineyards throughout the Kamptal region is a classic example of the chalky, loess soils north of the Danube. Like most of their wines, it is made in a bone dry style. Clean, bright aromatics on the nose follow through to the palate where white peach and stone fruit underly more minerality. It is a beautiful introduction into the Steininger’s philosophy as well as the world of Austrian Riesling.
