This single vineyard is located on the eastern end of Wachau, between the Loibenberg and Pfaffenberg sites. It is a small valley section composed of a deeply deposited, weathered gneiss soil. The resulting wine shows off aromas and flavors of vineyard peaches and impresses by its raciness and finesse. It is succulent and displays high drinkability, and is most distinctly characterized by the minerality of the primitive rock soil, which suggests a long future for this.
The term 'Smaragd' is a registered trademark of the Association "Vinea Wachau Nobilis Districtus". Classification as Smaragd indicates complex, rich wines from the Wachau.
The Steinertal Riesling displays notes of white pepper and white peach with a hint of dried herbs. It has bracing acidity and is elegant in style.
