Riesling Alter Reben Krems Rainer Wess 2021
The grapes come from vines aged 20-50 years, grown in the two vineyards - Stein and Kremsleithen. Shale soils predominate, and even in warm years the Riesling from these vineyards is more elegant and delicate than powerful.

More about this product
With more than 2,200 hectares of vineyards, the Kremstal region includes the vineyards around the historic town of Krems, backing onto the neighbouring and famous Wachau region to the west, the Krems valley with its dense loess deposits to the east, and the small wine villages south of the Danube clustered around the imposing Göttweig Abbey. In 2003, Rainer Wess fulfilled his dream of producing quality wines bearing his signature and his name on the label, as they epitomise the typicality and regional character of the Kremsstal. The focus of the work falls on local specialities - the spicy Grüner Veltliner and the elegant and mineral-driven Riesling, which Rainer and now the next generation, daughter Christina, are turning into both fresh, aromatic and light wines but also serious and complex ones with long ageing potential..All wines of the same producer
