Origin and Terroir The single vineyard Silberbichl was first documented as vineyard site in 1562. The name stems from the presence of mica (silver) in the deeper soil layers and the location on a hill (Bichl). The Silberbichl is a broad terraced vineyard site seated above the Danube River, comprised of old Danube gravel and weathered rock, covered with a layer of loess. Due to its south-eastern exposition it is the perfect site for Riesling. Vinification Only fully ripened Riesling grapes were harvested, then rushed to the cellar and gently processed. Special attention was drawn at the temperature-controlled fermentation. The cooler fermentation preserves the characteristic and unique flavors and aromas of this special wine. After the fermentation the wine was separated and allowed to develop its final character before being bottled. Tasting notes Strong green yellow in the glass, juicy stone fruit aromas in the nose, compact and rustic on the palate, powerful and lasting; a wine with much esprit and length, a very typical representative of the Kremstal denomination. Drink and meal recommendation This mineralic Riesling is a perfect companion to cold and spicy appetizers as well as grilled fish. It is also a great complement to Asian dishes, like backed spring rolls, wok or tempura.
