Wine Review Report:

wein.plus rating: very good (88 WP) What our ratings mean
Last reviewed: 19 April, 2021
Editor note: Clear, firm, polished aroma of cherries and more black than red berries with dried floral nuances. Firmly woven, tangy, again rather dark fruit, nutty to woody and slightly earthy tones, present, youthful tannin, still drying very slightly, persistent on the palate, slightly ethereal and spicy, a hint of salt, very good, firm, rather juicy finish with some polish. Very much wine for the money

One of the eight specific wine-growing districts in the Austrian province or generic wine-growing region of Lower Austria. In 1993, the districts of Donauland (since the 2008 vintage Wagram) and Carnuntum, which until then had formed a common winegrowing area, were separated. The Celts and later the Romans already practised viticulture here. In the middle of the first century, the former Celtic kingdom of Noricum became a Roman province. The Romans built a legionary camp and a civilian city with a large amphitheatre near the village of Petronell, where the Amber Road crossed the Danube, which had about...

In Austria, viticulture has been practised since the time of settlement by the Celts almost 3,000 years ago. The Burgenland municipality of Zagersdorf and the Lower Austrian municipality of Stillfried in the Weinviertel are considered the oldest wine-growing communities in Austria. In both places, grape seeds were found that date back to 700 and 900 BC respectively and can clearly be assigned to the species Vitis vinifera. The lifting of the ban on planting vines outside Italy by Emperor Domitian (51-96) by Emperor Probus (232-282) had a positive effect on viticulture. This...

The red grape variety (breeding number Klosterneuburg 181-2-71) is a new breeding between St. Laurent x Blaufränkisch (which was confirmed by DNA analyses carried out in 1997). Synonyms are Blaue Zweigeltrebe, Blauer Zweigelt, Cvaigelt, Cveigelt, Klosterneuburg 71, Rotburger, Semenac Cerni 71, Zweigelt 71, Zweigeltrebe and Zwiegelt. The cross was made in 1922 by Dr. Fritz Zweigelt (1888-1964) at the Klosterneuburger Weinbauinstitut (Lower Austria), who gave it the name Rotburger. It was not until 1975, in the course of the...
