Weingut Jager Current Releases

 

Zweigelt Rosé

The Zweigelt grows at the top end of the Vorder Seiber vineyard, in weathered “Gföhler Gneis” soil. The grapes are pressed with the stems and then allowed to ferment in steel tanks for three months.

Gruner Veltliner Federspiel Ried Klaus

The soil in the Klaus vineyard is of crystalline origin. Over the centuries Gföhler Gneis, which has a sandy consistency, has developed out of granite. The Klaus vineyard has a south-eastern exposure. The grapes are crushed and after the pressing ferment in stainless steel for three months.

Gruner Veltliner Federspiel Vorder Seiber

Vorder Seiber is the newest vineyard for Weingut Jager. Due to its south-western exposure it has the typical Gföhler Gneis of the area but is also covered by a 2 meter deep layer of loess. The grapes are crushed and after the pressing ferment in stainless steel for three months.

Gruner Veltliner Federspiel Selection

This wine is always a carefully sorted selection of Gruner from Weitenberg. Weitenberg is Gföhler Gneis with clay and deposits of loess that are typical in a south-western exposition. The grapes are crushed and after the pressing ferment in stainless steel for three months.

Riesling Federspiel Steinriegl

These vines grow on the south-westerly flank of the Vorder Seiber. The soil developed out of lime, silicate and marble and is only found in this part of Weissenkirchen. The grapes are crushed and after the pressing ferment in stainless steel for three months.

Riesling Smaragd Ried Achleiten

The migmatite and amphibolite based sand found in Achleiten warms easily and provides a truly unique soil for the vines. Over the centuries the earth was constantly eroded down by rain. The grapes are crushed and after the pressing ferment in stainless steel for three months.
