Falstaff Wineguide Austria/South Tyrol 2021/22

The Knoll winery has produced so many cult wines in the past decades that one could fill a whole book with these tasting notes alone. The label with St. Urban also has cult status and has, fortunately, not been changed in the past decades. However, a lot has happened on the winery itself: In 2014, the new winery building was opened, which is located behind the main building and where customers and guests are now welcomed. Emmerich and Monika Knoll run the winery together with their sons Emmerich junior, who has also been chairman of "Vinea Wachau" since 2012, and August.

They cultivate about 18 hectares, a good third of which are terraced vineyards. Grüner Veltliner (45 percent) is grown in the Kreutles, Trum, Loibenberg and Schütt vineyards, Riesling (45 percent) in the Loibenberg, Kellerberg, Pfaffenberg and Schütt vineyards. The Vinothekfüllung, a selection of the ripest grapes from various sites, is also made from both varieties - vintage permitting. The range is complemented by wines made from Gelber Muskateller, Chardonnay, Gelber Traminer and Blauburgunder. In years with beautiful botrytis, noble sweet wines from Auslese to Trockenbeerenauslese are also on the programme. A positive practice at Knoll: The Smaragd and Prädikat wines are only produced from September onwards, so that they can age and develop in the cool cellar over the summer. Knoll wines are considered to be late starters (which in truth is inaccurate) and very long-lived (which is completely true).
