Sauvignon Blanc, “Ried Moarfeitl” GSTK
The renowned grand cru Moarfeitl occupies a south-southwest-facing plateau situated above the Augenweide vineyard at 340 meters altitude. Neumeister planted two hectares of vines here in 1990, and Moarfeitl’s soils of sand, loam, and gravel are intermixed with volcanic elements, lending the Sauvignon Blanc from this site a distinctively assertive and profound mineral character. In accordance with the stringent requirements for GSTK (“Grosse STK Ried”) status, this spends 18 months in used oak casks between five and 25 hectoliters in capacity; like all of Neumeister’s wines, it undergoes a pre-fermentation maceration on its skins for several days before fermentation commences spontaneously.
These are wines of terroir par excellence, and we are confident they will prove riveting and revelatory to even the staunchest Sauvignon Blanc skeptic.Learn more
