Riesling Smaragd Ried Loibenberg


A Riesling originating from the steep terraces of the Wachau, characterized by pronounced minerality and distinctive acidity. An ideal companion for robust dishes: elegant yet powerful.


Weingut Simon Gattinger Ried Loibenberg


Altitude 213-396 Meter

Hours of sunshine 2004 h
Soil Gföhler gneis

The Loibenberg is one of the steepest and barest primary rock sites in the Wachau. The bedrock of Gföhl gneiss, along with a few islands of loess are what set the tone. The sandy-stony soil supports water drainage, facilitating the growth of the roots. Due to the steep stone terraces, the soil is heated for much longer than with other vineyards, providing favourable conditions for the bud break of the vines in spring. The Loibenberg can only be cultivated by hand.
