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.

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.
