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

  • Artner Rose Carnuntum Austria 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly neutral on the nose with small aromas of talc, raspberries, and carnations. Bright and super juicy in the mouth with lovely nuanced flavors of watermelon and raspberries, this is a playful rose, small scaled and superbly refreshing. Theres a little fleshiness that tries to emerge on the backend, along with a hint of orange oil, but the ac... Read More

  • Domane Wachau Gruner Veltliner Terraces 2012

    Snoothrank:

    BIG score for value in this great white wine!! Fragrant nose with notes of peach/nectarine, lime, meyer lemon, and some floral notes too. Medium bodied...full-mouth coating with great zippiness from lots of well integrated acid. More of the same fruit cocktail on the palate - lots of nectarine and maybe some ginger too. Great length with a reall... Read More

  • Steininger Karl Riesling Kabinett Steininger 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Really nice Austrian Riesling. Deep gold color, dry but with nice round honey and citrus flavors. Developed nicely in the glass and got better as it got a little warmer. Read More

  • Winzer Krems Gruner Veltliner 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Not much to this Austrian Gruner Veltliner. A bit of lemon cream, subtle touch of citrus but not much else. None of the floral notes or stone fruit one would expect, fairly flat. Read More
