Description: This Riesling comes from rocky Eastern facing slopes, and because of the nature of the terroir and the fact that it does not get afternoon sun, the Riesling has a natural higher acidity than Arndorfer's Gruner! He also uses a very old technique of raising his wines in large fuder barrels (barrels slightly larger than the big French tonneaux). With Riesling, this helps temper some of the incredible acid and adds balance. The winemaker writes, ""In Strass we have hills which are full of vineyards but there is also the flat close to the Danube, which is mostly cultivated with grain. We are on the northern border where we can grow wine, because 15 km further north there is no more wine and just grain, because it is too cold so far. But this is for our wines really important. Our region - the Kamptal - is mainly planted with white grapes especially Gruner Veltliner and Riesling. The soil and the climate help the grapes to express their origin." - Martin Arndorfer
