Districtus Austriae Controllatus
Ried Supperin was first documented in 1493. It owes its name to the Superior, abbess and matriarch of the former Poor Clares monastery in Dürnstein. The terrain is gently sloping and extends from the ancient city walls of Dürnstein from the north to the Danube River to the south. The natural stone walls that frame it, protect it and heat it by slowly releasing the heat of the sun accumulated during the day. It is one of the most unique vineyards in the entire Wachau. This peculiarity combined with the particular composition of the soil, which consists of a mixture of seasoned gneiss and fine gravel sediments, give rise to a wine of great personality and unique expressiveness. On top of all this, the vines of this Clos are 80 years old; all this generates an absolutely singular expression of Grüner Veltliner: never fruity but always spicy and salty, endowed with an unparalleled acidity. This wine remains in large oak barrels on the fine lees until the bottling. The wine has an intense greenish yellow color, on the nose we find herbaceous and tobacco notes, while in the mouth aromas of spices and dehydrated fruit fill the palate. Since 2017 these lands have been worked following the guidelines of organic viticulture while the wine and the cellar are certified organic since 2019 - AT-BIO 402.
