Diwald Riesling Goldberg
This product is currently sold out.
The Diwald family farm has been a pioneer of organic viticulture in Austria since 1980. Second generation winemaker Martin makes exquisite, small-batch wines. Martin interferes as little as possible in the cellar, deploying intuition, patience, humility, and a top-notch T-shirt collection. One of the stars of Austria’s new generation.
Goldberg is one of the best single vineyards in the village. Terraces and hills which slope towards the Danube Valley and mighty loess soils build the foundation for the Goldberg wines. The Riesling from this site grows on an often dry and hot Southern slope with plenty of loess and a relatively thin layer of hummus. The grape bunches are pressed whole. Then they spontaneously ferment in stainless steel tanks and remain on the lees until Summer. Natural yeasts are used for fermentation and a natural/full malolactic fermentation occurs.
This wine can be closely compared to an off-dry Spätlese. It has a robust body and its overall style is, quite simply put, warmer. The notes of citrus vibrate in the background while riper, more exotic aromas appear. The acidity, however, always remains wonderfully crisp, which also helps this wine mature beautifully.
