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!

Great and sound riesling here from Hager Matthias, drier than many, smart and yet already showing a lovely sense of development. Not such a bad thing and in fact this is drinking with a perfectly amount of next level complexity. Very mineral and just right. Drink 2021-2023. Tasted November 2021.

Judging by the surprising gold to orange colour this has perhaps seen skin contact with late harvested fruit. It seems to be a very intentional almost experimental style heading into orange. The nose is rather soft but complex with some honey, spice, pumpkin and earthiness. It is full bodied, barely off-dry, creamy yet firmly anchored by good acidity and some minerality. The focus and length are excellent. Interesting and well made but the problem is no label indication of the style. Tasted Nov 2021
