Roman Jäger’s wines are exemplary: structured around a precise fruitiness and vivacity, they still seek their equals with regards to consistency and clarity. The winemaker from Weissenkirchen has two main aims: he wants to allow all of his grape varieties to express their characteristic aromas as strongly as possible. However, he also wishes to enhance the specific authentic terroir notes of his terraces in his wines. His emphasis is on subtle nuances, and there are fine but important differences between his wines from the Klaus, the Achleiten, the Vorderseiber and the Steinriegl terraces. The Riesling from the latter, for example, is characterized by tightness and minerality, while the Riesling and Veltliner from the Achleiten terrace embrace more smoky notes. Jäger produces both in the Smaragd and the Federspiel categories, and also makes Sauvignon Blanc and Muskateller. He vinifies his wines in a cool tunnel vault in stainless steel tanks, so that he can elicit even the finest and subtlest fruit notes from his grapes. Once a year – usually in the third week of April – his wife Heidi runs a Heurigen, which departs from the classical tradition and impresses with a multitude of select culinary delicacies.
