Ice wine demands to the highest class in sweet wine production and the finest, most complex and even the most intense crescences at all. Since it cannot be harvested every year and the risk is immense, these wines are rare. The Weinrieder winery has been harvesting ice wines for over 40 years and they are served in the world’s best restaurants! Golden yellow colour. Fruity, sweet, complex. In the nose you will find ripe garden fruits and a fine spice of black pepper. This wine has a wonderful balance between sweetness and acidity on the palate, almost refreshing, with a long finish! Endless Potential! Perfect to pair for example with , light desserts, foie gras, or cheese. Weingut Weinrieder is a family-owned estate, situated in the centre of the Weinviertel region, an hilly area with loamy soils, bringing minerality to compliment the characteristic ‘pepper’ spiciness found throughout the region.

Weinrieder are incredible white wine specialists based in the centre of the Weinviertel region in Austria, in the village of Kleinhadersdorf. Owner and winemaker Freidrich Rieder and his family are intent on producing high quality, fruit-driven wines and Eisweins. As well as producing peppery Gruner Veltliners typical of the area, racy full-flavoured Riesling, fine Chardonnay, and rich, minerally Weissburgunder, Weinrieder has a great reputation as an Eiswein specialist and the wines regularly achieve marks of 90+ points.

The estate comprises about 20 acres across the best south/southwest-facing sites, growing Gruner Veltliner, Riesling, Weissburgunder, Chardonnay and the indigenous red grape St. Laurent, which is used to make a light pink eiswein. The single vineyards Birthal, Kugler, Schneiderberg, Hohenleiten, and Bockgarten are particularly renowned. The predominately loess and loam soils impart minerality to compliment the characteristic “pepper” spiciness found throughout the region. Early and consistent work in the vineyards, including an extremely rigorous green harvest, promotes thick skinned fruit able to withstand a long hang time. Production is relatively simple – the winery is full of spotless stainless steel tanks for long cool fermentations with extended lees contact. Rieder feels that, as so often in cool climate winemaking, preparation and the timing and careful execution of the harvest are his most important tools.
