Frequent designation or part of the name of Rieden in Austria. The designation refers to newly exposed vineyards.
The vineyard is located in the Kastralgemeinde Liesing in the 23rd district Liesing of the same name in the southwest of Wien (Austria). It belongs to the Großlage Maurerberg. The vineyard was classified by the Winzervereinigung WienWein as 1 ÖTW (Erste Lage of Austria's traditional vineyards). The south-facing vineyards with slopes ranging from 2 to 17 degrees cover 11 hectares of vines at 250 to 300 metres above sea level on shell limestone soils. The microclimate is characterised by many hours of sunshine as well as cool temperatures at night and moisture from the neighbouring Vienna Woods. About half of the vineyard is planted with the typical varieties for Viennese wine, Gemischter Satz and half with Riesling.
I have great respect for the scope and quality of the wein.plus encyclopaedia. It is a unique place to go for crisp, sound information on terms from the world of wine.Dr. Edgar Müller
