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.
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.
