Tasting Notes
Birgit Echinger started her own estate in 1992 having worked at her familys estate before. She is the leading light of an 11 Austrian women winemaker group, mentoring and advising. The estate is situated near the town of Strass in the heart of the Kamptal region, farming organically and with minimul intervention in the winery she makes lovely wines. The Hasel vineyard, named after the Hazel bushesthat proliferate in the region, is situated on the lower slopes but still has the good Loess soils which give such mineral flavours to the wines here and plenty of length.
