Notes from David Bowler Wine:

"Out of a total of the 30 hectares in this vineyard, Wachter-Wiesler farms five, at an elevation ranging from 250-300m above sea-level. With iron-rich clay, the soil characteristics here are quite similar to the the base of the Eisenberg hill. The single-vineyard Weinberg comes from the heart of the vineyard and is a selection of the oldest vines, which average fifty years-old. Wachter made a single 2,300 liter barrel of this wine laden with raspberry fruit and minerals.

Christoph Wachter began working at his family winery in 2008 when he was just
twenty years old. He took over full responsibility in 2010, and now farms sixteen
hectares of vineyards in Südburgenland, in the towns of Eisenberg and Deutsch
Schützen. His credo, “Wine is the most interesting, natural and authentic when
you recognize its origin. After that, all of our efforts are aligned - and so our
grapes grow as close to nature and with as little outside influence as possible. The
character comes entirely from the soils of Deutsch-Schützen and Eisenberg.”
