Ried Jägerberg

Erste STK Ried

Single Vineyard Jägerberg
Premier Cru STK

Ideal conditions for Burgundy varieties

The Single Vineyard Jägerberg is located within the cadastral district Kranach, which belongs to the village of Gamlitz.
The former name of this single vineyard was “Ried Weinberg”.
When the siblings Mrs and Mr Jäger came in the possession of that mountain, the name “Jägerberg” was used in the colloquial language in those days.
Due to these historical reasons we decided to change the name “Ried Weinberg” to “Ried Jägerberg” in 1992.
For many years the name “Ried Jägerberg” has only been used by the Erwin Sabathi Winery.

Climate

On Jägerberg the temperature differences between day and night are smaller – this fact provides ideal conditions for Burgundy varieties. These expressive wines reflect a complex aroma spectrum with an enormous tension.

Soil

The vineyards of Jägerberg are located in the tertiary sedimentary region of the “Gamlitz Schlier”, also called “Older Schlier”. (“Schlier” is fine-sandy marl clay, in this case with deposits of sandy quartz). The existence of a lot of fossils is a typical character for such chalky, marine sediments. The soil type is a chalky Regosol of loamy-sandy tertiary material.
The water retention capacity is high, the water permeability is moderate.
