About
Emmerich Knoll Riesling "Loibner" Federspiel 2022 is a captivating dry white wine, produced from Riesling grapes meticulously cultivated in the Loibner sector of the Wachau valley, Austria. This Federspiel designation denotes wines that are moderate in alcohol yet vibrant and expressive, capturing the essence of the Wachau's unique terroir with precision and elegance. The Knoll family, renowned for their traditional winemaking approach, crafts this Riesling to highlight the varietal's characteristic acidity and mineral complexity, making it a true reflection of the region's winemaking heritage.
Producer
There is hardly another vineyard that has shaped the perception of the Wachau as a serious high-quality wine-growing region as strongly as that of the Knoll family. Many generations of this family have dedicated their lives to growing wine: the first glass bottles were filled with Knoll wine in the 1950s, and the arguably most famous wine label in Austria – the family’s trademark baroque image of Saint Urban – first graced the Knoll wine bottles in 1962. The family cultivates wine on sixteen hectares, and the names of his terraces have become common knowledge among both national and international wine drinkers: the Kellerberg, Loibenberg, Pfaffenberg and especially the Schütt yield the fruit for the famous range of Knoll Riesling and Veltliner, which are all clear, precise, mineral-rich and structured, frequently revealing their full potential after years or even decades.
Tasting notes

The 2022 “Loibner” Federspiel unfolds with an aromatic bouquet of white peach, citrus blossoms, and a distinct mineral undertone, indicative of its riverstone-influenced terroir. On the palate, it is remarkably fresh and lively, presenting flavors of lime, green apple, and a touch of white pepper, all underpinned by a crisp, mineral-driven acidity that leads to a clean, enduring finish. This Riesling’s balance of fruit, acidity, and minerality showcases Emmerich Knoll’s expertise in producing wines of depth and distinction.

Pairing

Pairing the Emmerich Knoll Riesling “Loibner” Federspiel with light seafood dishes, such as grilled trout or a citrusy ceviche, can highlight the wine’s vibrant acidity and complex flavor profile. It also pairs beautifully with Asian cuisine, where its fruity brightness and crisp finish complement the spiciness and richness of the dishes.

This is the story of how one of the most exciting wine regions in Austria came into being. For millions of years, the Danube River has carved its serpentine path through solid soils, and today the rocky terraces provide places for growing grapes. Two grape varieties are mainly cultivated in this region: Riesling and Grüner Veltliner.
