Vintage Notes

Hinter der Mauer is a term that has a special meaning in the village of Loiben where I worked with Weingut Knoll.  It refers to the space on a terraced vineyard between a row of vines and the wall to the next level.  This row is often extra narrow and exceedingly difficult to work. There is a sense of being squished.  But it often produces some of the best tasting fruit do the radiant heat from the stone wall next to it.  I learned of this term one jovial evening with the Knoll family.  We were all sitting around the table enjoying wines and they were teaching me some Austrian dialect terms that they were both proud of and entertained by.  Hinter der Mauer is not only Austrian but distinctly a Loiben term.  It would not even have the same meaning in other areas of the Wachau. I think the meaning is both fun and appropriate given the Covid – 19 pandemic.  This sense of being against the wall.  I think the general consumer will share this sense of pressure.
