HETEROGENEOUS KREMSTAL WITH MARTIN NIGL JR.

Newly anointed as an appellation in 2007, Kremstal separated from the much larger region of Niederösterreich. Is neighbors are Kamtal and Wachau. Jancis Robinson says of Kremstal “(it) produces wines of almost as much finesse which tend to cost rather less.” It’s compared to its neighbors because of climate and soil types and its championing of the great white grape, Grüner Veltliner. Grüner is a spicy, herbaceous, sometimes grassy white. In Kremstal, there are two main types of vineyard sites, those closer to the City of Krems benefit from the alluvial deposits of the Danube, while the slopes show off iconic Loess terraces, which make the vines struggle, bringing out more astringent and grassy whites. Some producers choose to blend sites together to achieve a varied, balanced wine, but Nigl creates balanced wines by hyper-focusing on single vineyard parcels.
