Niederösterreich Wine

The Niederösterreich region of Austria (meaning lower Austria) is the country's largest wine-growing area, including eight specific wine growing regions. The regions include: Wachau, Carnuntum, Kremstal DAC, Kamptal DAC , Thermenregion, Wagram, Traisental DAC, and Weinvertel DAC. The region has three major climactic zones: The Weinvertel, the region along the Danube river with adjoining valleys west of Vienna and a warmer, Pannonian climate in the south-east of the Niederösterreich. Gruener Veltliner is the most widely grown grape of the region accounting for 44% of the area's production, but Riesling, Roter Veltliner and other white varietals are very prominent here as well. Red varieties such as Pinot Noir, Zweigelt and Blaufränkisch are more popular in the areas closest to Burgenland such as Carnuntum. – Description from Constance Chamberlain

  • Rudi Pichler Weissburgunder Smaragd 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Creamy vanilla, elderflower and apricot notes are full and firm on the nose with a definite spice.

    Fleshy and soft aromas of peach and apricot with pleasant floral notes coming through as well and just a touch of muted Meyer lemon. In the mouth this is delicate, pleasant and emollient while being round, full and silky, with juicy round red apple and peach notes on entry, delivering nicely candied lemon peel and lime zest through the midpalate...

    Nicely fruity on the nose with aromas of lemon zest, cream cheese frosting and vanilla cake batter. Smooth and silky mouthfeel with a rich palate of perfumed fleshy peach and green apple with vanilla and honey spice and a stony minerality to tie it all together.
