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 2020 Riesling Steiner Schreck

The Schreck is the steepest of all of the Krems Valley sites and sits at approximately 320 meters above sea level. 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.

Fermented spontaneously, with berries, in stainless steel after 48 hour maceration. Aged 12 months in stainless, 10 months on gross lees and berries.
