Wine Enthusiast 92 points - This is a rich, creamy wine that has warmth and ripe pear and currant flavors. Spiced lemon cuts through the dense structure to give a soft yet crisp and clean wine that reveals great acidity at the end. Glass stopper. (Sep 2013)

Wine maker notes
This small vineyard, on steep south facing terraces, is shaped in an arc, giving the visual impression of the Monk’s Hood, hence the name. A recent acquisition for Stadt Krems, it produces a unique and tantalizing wine.

Technical notes
Alcohol: 13.5%

Producer
Established in 1452, the original purpose of this winery was to provide revenue for the hospital in Krems. The estate-bottled wines of the city’s own winery have always been a source of pride for its residents, but over the years the winemaking itself became perfunctory and lacked distinction - until the arrival of the current team in charge of the winery. During those lesser years these wines were passed by as young winemakers in the zone pushed for higher quality in the wake of the 1985 diethylene glycol scandal. Since 2003 many Stadt Krems vineyards have been replanted and revitalized and the cellar has undergone a renovation and expansion. Fritz Miesbauer and his young, ambitious team now craft their wines in the stainless steel tanks of a pristine but technically simple cellar. With a compact range of six offerings sourced from a variety of soils and handled by careful and adept managers, the wines display both the minerality and the juiciness of the Kremstal.
