Emmerich Knoll makes arguably the greatest classically-styles wines in Austria.

Their regiment is decidedly old school Wachau, with a reliance on large oak casks for maturation and release dates that are significantly later than some of their neighbours who prefer stainless steel and a quicker turnaround. As a result, the wines develop glacially and can confound even the most die-hard Austrian wine geeks. As anyone who has had the privilege of tasting many older bottles will tell you, though, these are wines that reward patience.

They have access to the greatest vineyard sites in the region. Loibenberg is no exception. The ancient dry stone walls (some are dating back to the 14th century) reach up to 420m above sea level and it has the capacity to create some of the ripest and most exotic wines the estate makes.

The Federspiel bottling is more reserved. It is medium-bodied, intense and mineral but rather light and elegant on the palate. Fine tannins, lean, straight, pure and clear: a classic in top form.

FAQ

What is natural wine?

The philosophy of natural wine is one of minimal-intervention, from vineyard to cellar. Natural wines are made using quality grapes, generally grown using organic and biodynamic practices, however vineyards may not always be certified as such due to the restrictive nature of these certification systems. Natural wines in most cases won't be filtered or fined, processes which generally involve the use of animal products.

Are your wines vegan friendly?

In almost all cases yes! Generally if you see "unfiltered and unfined" this will be an assurance that no animal products have been used in the process. The fining process is where conventional winemakers will often use egg and fish products (yep pretty gross) to remove sediment from wines. The sediment is natural, healthy and adds flavour so natural wine makers almost always leave some of it in.

Are your wines chemical free?

In most cases yes, natural wines generally use grapes grown using biodynamic or organic farming methods and will have none of the over 200 additives that can be found in conventional wines, with the occasional exception of a tiny amount of sulphur. Some natural winemakers choose to add a small amount of sulphur (SO2) to ensure their wines are less volatile, while a lot of natural winemakers believe strongly against this.
