wein.plus rating: excellent (91 WP) What our ratings mean
Last reviewed: 7 June, 2021
Editor note: Quite cool, firm, herbal, nutty and floral aroma of bright yellow fruits with nuances reminiscent of lychee and marzipan. Quite polished, firmly knitted fruit with delicate melting and a hint of nut butter, lively acidity, some fine sandy tannin, dense and persistent on the palate, hints of rock candy, pepper and juniper, some depth, salty and chalky minerality, very good to long finish with slight varietal bitterness and some light woody aromas

One of the three specific wine-growing areas in the Austrian province or generic wine-growing region of Styria. It lies close to the borders with Slovenia and Hungary, as well as Burgenland. Formerly called Südoststeiermark, the area was renamed Vulkanland Steiermark in 2016. It is also known as the "land of castles and palaces". Four wine routes lead through the landscape characterised by rolling hills. Viticulture is mainly practised as a sideline. Well-known wine-growing villages are Bad Radkersburg, Feldbach, Gleisdorf, Hartberg, Kapfenstein (Rieden An der Kapelle, Hinteregg, Rosenleiten), Klöch...

It borders the provinces of Carinthia (SW), Salzburg (W), Upper Austria (N), Lower Austria (N) and Burgenland (E), as well as Slovenia in the south.

In the Middle Ages, the Roman Catholic Church and its monasteries, especially Rein Abbey of the ZisterzienserCistercian...

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 exact origin of the white grape variety is uncertain; it could come from Germany, France or the Czech Republic (Moravia). The different varieties differ in berry colour, aroma, leaf shape and cluster size, as well as in vigour, yield and susceptibility to disease, but they have almost the same DNA profile with minor differences. They are therefore considered as a single grape variety, although they are very much listed separately as distinct varieties in many grape variety catalogues. There are the following three main varieties:

Savagnin Blanc (France) or Gelber Traminer, Weißer...
