About Austrian Wine

Austria is a country with over 4000 years of wine making history, but a scandal in 1985 destroyed its credibility. This is perhaps why the status and popularity of Austrian wines today still is not fully reflective of the high quality wines the country can produce.

Grüner Veltliner is the most important wine made in Austria, distinguished by its lightly fruity, noticeable spice and characteristic white pepper notes. This variety comprises roughly a third of all plantings. In terms of volume, Riesling plays a much smaller role than in Germany, but is responsible for some of the most appreciated dry white wines made in the country.

In red varietals, Austrian native varieties are dominant and include the tart and peppery Zweigelt, spicy and dense Blaufränkisch and juicy Saint Laurent.

Wine Spectator – A minerally style, offering pure and powerful flavors of currant, dried white raspberry and gooseberry, with mouthwatering notes of lemon bar. Accents of mineral and slate show on the finish. Drink now through 2022.

Jancis Robinson – Tight, bright, intensely zesty and refreshing. Not particularly concentrated but lingers.
