- Der Eisenberg -
Saybritz, Szapary, Hummergraben, Königsberg - the vineyards in which the grapes for "Groszer Wein" grow can be read like the "Who's Who" of the best vineyards on the Eisenberg. Eisenberg was a secret for a long period of time. Now it is the heart of central Europe: on the border to Hungary not far from Slovenia. And even Croatia is closer toit than Vienna. No wonder that the wines that grow here speak with some unsual accents. At the end of the Alps, at the beginning of Pannonia and with a touch of Mediterranean.
Our Single Vineyard
- Saybritz -
The 2.6 hectare area Saybritz is 250 to 350m above sea level and is, with its 25% gradient, a steep hillside on the southwestern Eisenberg. Here is a special microclimate. The location is very sunny and the thermals ensure constant ventilation for the grapevines. The grapes get their typical mineral components from the soil, which is made of brown earth from the rocks and slates.
- Szapary -
The 2.2 hectare area Szapary is 250-350m above sea level. It is the most steepest and therefore the most difficult hillside of the Eisenberg. The warm and permeable slate soil of this location produces extreme filigree and therefore very fruity wines, with aromas of light red fruits, cherries and currants. On the palate the wines serve mineral notes. They appear very finely structured and have a salty and spicy finish.
- Königsberg -
The location of the Königsberg in the south, protected from the wind, covers 3.9 hectares. The area has a gradient of six percent at around 300 meters above sea level and consists of sandy and permeable loam soil. The Königsberg provides good conditions for the grape variety Rotburger (Zweigelt), these grapes built the basis for the unusual strong, almost masculine wine with an impressive structure.
- Hummergraben -
The wines of the Ried Hummergraben (5.5 hectares) get their strength and density from the water-storing and loamy soil. The area is around 200 to 300 meters above sea level and located in the south-east. It has a gradient of around six percent where grape varietys like the Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt, Syrah, Welschriesling and Pinot Blanc grow.
- Kroatische Ried -
with a size of only 1.9 hectares the Kroatische Ried is on top of the Eisenberg and around 400 meters above sea level. The area has a stony slate soil which is hardly covered with clay at a gradient of around two percent and is the reason for the pure minerality of the wines. The Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt, Cabernet, Sauvignon, Pinot Blanc and Welschriesling flourish here.
- Csaterberg -
The soils of the Csaterberg are cluttered with opals and are a special geological feature of the Eisenberg DAC area. The opals lie as fragments, splinters or as heavy stones on the ground of the vineyard. The idyllic Csaterberg is located at the southwestern hillside of the Eisenberg. It is completely surrounded by a forest, which strenghtens the cool atmosphere of this location. Grape varieties like the Welschriesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Müller Thurgau and the Blaufränkisch grow here.
