About

Product Description:

Erich Sattler is emblematic of the new generation of Austrian vintners: a wine-school grad and the 4th generation in the family to take over his family’s estate, in 1999.
“We make wine as my grandfather did,” he says, “only with better machines.”
Located in and around the village of Tadten, Sattler’s vineyards are on the east side of Lake Neusiedl, which moderates the warm air from the easterly Pannonian plain’s continental influence.

Erich never uses any technical concentration methods like reverse osmosis, or any additives before or after fermentation. Sattler succeeds in his objective of producing “variety-typical, dense and smooth wines with harmoniously integrated tannins, lovely fruit and pleasant acidity.”

The vines around Tadten are part of an enormous gravel bar that stretches more than five kilometers and formed more than two million years ago by the ancient riverbeds of the Danube. The soils are mineralic and layered with gravel, brown earth and occasionally sand. Sourced from over 20 year old vines.
