Description to Rosalia DAC
One of the five specific wine-growing regions in the Austrian province or generic wine-growing region of Burgenland. In 2016, a restructuring took place with partial changes in the designations and area boundaries. The newly defined Rosalia winegrowing region replaced the former Großlage in the political district of Mattersburg in 2017. This comprises 19 municipalities, including Bad Sauerbrunn, Forchtenstein, Loipersbach, Mattersburg and the main town of Pöttelsdorf. It is named after the Heuberg, the highest elevation of the Rosalien Mountains (748 metres), a foothill of the Alps, which is also called Rosalia. Because of the strawberry, wine, sweet chestnut and many fruit varieties, it was given the epithet "Sweet Region". Large parts are designated as a nature park. The area adjoins the Leithaberg wine-growing region to the south.
Pannonian climate prevails. In combination with geologically young deposits of a primeval sea with sandy soils, there are favourable conditions for viticulture with especially red wine varieties. In 2017, the vineyards covered 297 hectares of vines. A well-known producer is the Domaine Pöttelsdorf.
Starting with the 2017 vintage, the origin-controlled quality level Rosalia DAC was introduced. All other quality wines must be marketed with the origin Burgenland, the country wines under the winegrowing region designation Weinland. In addition to the generally valid DAC conditions, the following rules apply:
For the red wine Rosalia DAC Reserve, the general regulations for reserve apply. The alcohol content must be at least 13% vol. The indication of a vineyard on the label is permitted.
Rosalia DAC Rosé must be vinified from one or more red quality wine grape varieties (according to Austrian wine law). The indication of a grape variety on the label is not permitted, but the indication of a vineyard is. The wine must be matured dry in stainless steel tanks or in wooden barrels. It must have a bouquet of red berries and a fresh, fruity and spicy taste.
The application for the state inspection number may be submitted from 1 January of the year following the harvest. In the case of the Reserve level, this may be done from 1 May of the second year following the harvest.
