About the Winery
The Hager Matthias winery is located in the small village of Mollands in the Kamptal area of Lower Austria. Matthias took over the 12-hectare land and the family business at an early age. He aims to produce the best quality wine possible and to focus on being in balance with nature. The lands are cultivated according to biodynamic principles and are certified Demeter. Matthias has a vast knowledge about plants and insects, and about keeping the flora and fauna in harmony with the vines. Matthias Hager is one of the most experimental winemakers in the Kamptal region, Austria. He understood early how to work with different soil types from loess to clay. He established different product lines to highlight these differences: the blue one representing fresh, lively wines including Grüner Veltliner and Sauvignon Blanc; and the brown line gravitating towards more earthy, flavourful produce and the red line stands for no sulphites!
90 points - Michael Godel
Tasted side by side with the estate’s Alte Reben Ried Steinleiten Riesling Reserve and could not more different, for obvious reasons and also those less so. They being texture and aerosol mainly, with orange spray, all the citrus otherwise and more mineral than one could dig up from tract of Urgestein soil. Quite classic in many respects, very textured like a salve dissolving on the palate and such grippy, grape tannin and salted finish. Drink 2021-2024. Tasted November 2021.
