Weszeli Riesling 'Seeberg' Kamptal 2017


Country: Austria

Region: Kamptal

Type: White Wine

Grape: Riesling

The diversity of the Kamptal is extensive, and Davis Weszeli's vineyards have great breadth in various exposures, soil types, and genetic materials that have amassed from the nearly 400-year-old Summerer estate he purchased in 2010. Seeberg, primarily grown on mica schist (another acidic rock type), gives tremendous saltiness and deep mineral characteristics, and may be the top site in his collection.

Honey, apple, preserved lemon, and a light white smokiness lead with aromatic charm, while the initial attack on the front palate is strong and piercing with layers of texture. This high acid, salty wine is ripe with tart apricot flavors and finishes with a soft bitterness. The wine spends 18 months in semi-neutral 2000-liter oak barrels, resulting in a Riesling that is both lithe and deeply complex.
