Kremstal | Stein

When Urban and Dominique Stagård took over the family estate in 2006, they set straight to reimagining its potential. Their vision had four elements: reclaiming obscure vineyards, reexamining the possibilities of iconic sites, farming based on a close study of soils, and making wine by drawing on knowledge and techniques of the past. Riesling, the variety the Stagårds say “speaks most to us,” is their clear focus though grüner veltliner finds a place in their work as well. Both varieties are grown organically (certified since 2009) on 17 hectares of exceptional sites scattered across the Kremstal and the Wachau.

Stagård 2015 Steiner Schreck Riesling

The Schreck is the steepest of all of the Krems Valley sites. Everything must be done by hand here and the yields are naturally low. The Schreck is the most “German-like” of the range, displaying apples, stone fruit and a hint of apricot with a very taught, linear structure. You’d never guess by its complexity that it’s only 12.7% alcohol.
