The steeply terraced vineyard Liebenberg, which stretches west of Dürnstein, ranks among the most interesting single-vineyard sites of Wachau. It is located on meager, weathered soils of gneiss and mica schist with an exposure from south to southwest. Here thrive vines that produce wines full of mineral elegance and expansive nuances, which will not loose their distinctive origin even after many years of cellaring.

Wine Enthusiast"Cellar Selection" This wine has a full-bodied character that is very ripe. Pepper dominates the flavors, showing off the quince and pear fruits. There is perhaps too much sulfur at this touch, so let it blow off when opening and before drinking. This wine has huge potential to age, so don't drink before 2015.
