Notes from Circo Vino:
A member of “Vinea Wachau Nobilis Districtus,” an association of Wachau winemakers who follow strict quality control rules, the Knoll Winery upholds stringent farming and winemaking standards that vintage after vintage propel their wines to the top of restaurant, collector and critic’s lists. Knoll wines are easily recognized by their distinct label that depicts an ornate image of St. Urban, the patron saint of winemakers and vineyards. While in the Wachau, one can also dine at the family’s acclaimed, 400 year old restaurant, Loibnerhof Familie Knoll.
Perfect weather conditions made 2015 a very special vintage for the Wachau. A hot summer, rainy August, and warm, mild autumn combined to allow late harvesting in all of the Wachau’s vineyards. The overripe, botrytised fruit enabled a full line of Emmerich’s celebrated dessert wines, and we are thrilled to share the fruits of this historic vintage with you.
Normally vinified dry, Austria’s beloved Grüner also shines as a dessert wine, bearing scents of saffron and candied lemon.
