Nigl



"The wine grows in the vineyard", the wine-growers often say. As far as Martin Nigl is concerned, this hits the nail right on the head. As regards white wine in particular, the work accomplished in the vineyards is absolutely essential, since wine is unforgiving of the slightest error. Consequently the wine-grower inspects his vineyards nearly every day in order to make crucial decisions about pruning, pest control, watering, thinning out grapes and vintage all at the appropriate time.

Meanwhile, it looks as if Martin Nigl is familiar with all of his vines, with their history, their strengths and weaknesses: "Just by drinking a glass of mature wine, you can tell if all the work in the vineyards has been carried out properly, whether the wines have been well looked after or have suffered." If this is so, then this wine-grower certainly cares well for his wines.

The estate cultivates in netural and integrated vineyards where mostly GrĂ¼ner Veltliner and Riesling are grown. The richness of materials in the wines is due to the soil of primary rocks (weather-worn granite). Also the micro-climate of the Kremstal and the huge impact of intense heat in the summer and severe cold in the winter have a decisive influence on the wine. It is quite common that hot summer days are followed by cool night temperatures coming from the Waldviertel. Consequently the grape skins, streched by the warm sunlight during the day, can easily absorb the manifold flavours of the cool nights.

It takes about 1 to 1.5 months to pick all the grapes as the vineyards have to be monitored several times for vintage to ensure that only the ripest grapes are collected. It goes without saying that the grapes are picked by hand.

The process of cultivating white wines in steel casks is an absolute must - even though the most impostant development obviously takes place in the vineyards. The wine cannot be improved in the wine-cellar but is preserved, which in itself demands great care.

Martin Nigl: "It does not take much to produce a strong wine in the wine-cellar containing 14% alcohol. The skill is to develop a 12% wine and rack it, with all the goodness the grapes bring along from the vineyard: fruit, finesse, elegance, density and mineral content"
