Brandstatt is Peter's re-cultivation project in the Spitzer Graben, the coolest area of the Wachau, at about 450 m above sea level. The mica slate vineyard was gradually replanted with Riesling after the walls were repaired, all by hand. Its a wine meant to evoke the past while being of the most relevant style in the region, showcasing the special nuances of wines from terraced vineyard, in which the terroir and an old winemaking tradition are more important than the grape variety. Riesling sees longer maceration and ageing than the rest of the line up in traditional, local acacia barrels.
