of the highest quality with the distinct spice of Achleiten.
with the vineyard draped on the upper ridge of Achleiten towards Klaus.
South-East facing, between 285m and 325m altitude, terraced mostly with escarpments rather than dry walls. One of the highest lying sites of Achleiten, just before the ridge bending towards Ried Klaus. This location provides great ventilation and the grapes are one of the latest ripening. The vineyard is crowned with the oldest medlar tree in the Wachau. It is lined with the Welterbesteig hiking trail which leads through an oak tree forest, and features a bench inviting for a break. The vineyard was planted in 1983 entirely with Riesling.
The upper part of Ried Achleiten is mainly composed of Gföhler Gneiss. Achleiten is famed for being the most distinct and recognisible Ried in the Wachau - easily recognisable by the Achleiten spice that transcends all wines coming from this location.
