One of the less well-known Prager vineyards & wines, yet for me one of their most singular & thrilling, perhaps because Klaus is located way up the rock face at approx 550 metres above sea level, on one of the Wachaus most exposed sites & Pragers highest vineyard. I admire this wine for its uncompromising stance & brilliant tension; influenced no doubt by the rocky, nutrient poor soils. One for the long term, till 2019 & beyond.
