Weingut Stadt Krems Riesling Steinterrassen 2011

Member Review by Kristin Watts:

Decidedly full and sweet on the nose with hints of butterscotch laced with dried apricot and a touch of pineapple; just lovely! More acid on the palette which reveals itself on the nose as it opens...quality.

Weingut Stadt Krems:
Historically, Weingut Stadt Krems arose from two sources. The first source is the property of the Bürgerspitalstiftung - In 1210, Duke Leopold IV of Babenberg founded a public hospital in Krems and left important legacies to it, including vineyards. The second source was the generous bequest of the imperial Burggrave of Krems, Ulrich von Dachsberg, who presented the town with vineyards in 1452.... Read more
Historically, Weingut Stadt Krems arose from two sources. The first source is the property of the Bürgerspitalstiftung - In 1210, Duke Leopold IV of Babenberg founded a public hospital in Krems and left important legacies to it, including vineyards. The second source was the generous bequest of the imperial Burggrave of Krems, Ulrich von Dachsberg, who presented the town with vineyards in 1452. With over 550 years of history, Weingut Stadt Krems is one of the oldest wine-producers in Austria, and even in the whole of Europe. The clash of the Western Baltic oceanic climate with that of East Pannonia leads to an exciting interplay and strong climatic variations between day and night, and all that in a narrow space, but the mighty Danube helps to balance them out. Naturally, the vegetation is affected by such sharp variations in temperature and this proves to be very beneficial for winegrowing: it is precisely such conflicting climatic influences that give the wines their fruity taste and bouquet. Hours Monday to Friday 9:00-12:00am and 1:00-5:00pm Saturday 9:00am-1:00pm Read less

Has a typical minerality while the bouquet reminds one of apricots and peaches. It's a transparent and well structure wine; very fruity and easy to drink.

Famed winemaker, Fritz Miesbauer has been working since 2003 to elevate the quality of these wines and has certainly made a great achievement with this Riesling. Beautifully ripe fruit on the nose and palate with lovely peaches and stone fruit.
