Neusiedlersee Wine

The Neusiedlersee hugs the borders of Hungary and Carnuntum and is one of Burgenland’s  northernmost regions. Despite our pairing suggestion, the Neusiedlersee region is most famous for their sweet wines made from Welshriesling and wines made from the red, Zweigelt. The area is home to 7,649 hectares of vines that experience long hours of sunshine and an even longer growing season due to the hot, dry summers and cold winters the region experiences.

Here Botrytis is prominent not only because of the lake’s proximity to the vineyards, but additionally by the many salt lakes present throughout the vineyard plots. These bodies of water create high humidity and regular autumn fog which lead to Austria’s famous high-quality dessert wines categorized as Beeranauslese and Trokenbeeranauslese. The long ripening season also accounts for the residual sugar found even in the regions dryer whites which are fruit-intensive and generally classified as Auslese or Späteles.

  • Nittnaus Heideboden Pinot Blanc 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Simple and fresh herbal yet bready aromas of yeast and pepper with nice peachy floral notes as well. Quite playful. In the mouth this is juicy and more citrus driven, with lemon and grapefruit flavors playing the dominant role in this refreshing glass of wine that is approachable and unpretentious. Read More

  • Steindorfer Apetlon Rouge 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Very interesting Austrian red blend of Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch and Saint Laurent. A medium to light bodied red with a touch of smoke on the nose and palate, dark red cherries, rhubarb, dusty fine grained tannin and some nice acidity on the back end. Read More

  • Leo Hillinger Zweigelt 2011

    Snoothrank:

    First impression was of a low quality cab franc or gamay, somewhat musty, gamey and perfumey. However, this wine changed with a bit of air and some food to go with it. Now there's some southern Rhone GSM quality, light tannin, plum and dark cherry. Decent acidity and a bit of that gaminess still present but more in the background. Read More

  • Leo Hillinger Blaufränkisch 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly light weight Austrian red from the blaufrankisch grape. Medium to dark purple, red berries, bright cherries and some decent acidity. This leans more on the acidity and less on the fruit similar to an inexpensive pinot. Read More
