Editor note: Translate to English Herber Duft nach schwarzen Beeren und Sauerkirschen mit an Heilkräuter erinnernden Aromen und einer Spur Lakritz. Etwas säuerliche Frucht im Mund, leicht pflanzliche und nussige Töne, ein wenig trocknendes Tannin und leichter Säurebiss, nicht allzu tief, getrocknet-pflanzliche Töne, ordentlicher bis guter Abgang.

The federal state of Burgenland with its capital Eisenstadt is located in the very east of Austria. It borders Slovakia to the north, Hungary to the east, Slovenia for a few kilometres to the south and the two Austrian provinces of Lower Austria and Styria to the west. Viticulture has been of great importance here for two and a half millennia, which is underlined by the saying "Extra Pannoniam non es vita; si est vita, non est ita" (Outside Pannonia , one cannot live; if one can live, then not like here), originating from the historian Johannes Aventinus (1477-1534). Along with...

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...

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...

This red grape variety comes from France. The name is probably derived from the French word for blackbird (merle), because these birds like to nibble the berries, which are very sweet when fully ripe. However, the name may also be an allusion to the black-blue colouring of the berries similar to the bird. There are over 60 synonyms, which testify to its worldwide distribution. The most important are Alicante Noir, Begney, Bigney, Bigney Rouge, Bini, Black Alicante, Blue Merlot, Bordò, Cabernet del Cleto, Crabutet, Crabutet Noir, Crabutet Noir Merlau, Hebigney, Higney, Médoc Noir, Merlau, Merlot Black, Merlot Blue, Merlot Crni, Merlot...
