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

  • Laurenz V Singing Gruner Veltliner Case of 6 Bottles 2010


    Peach and citrus notes on the nose with some floral notes. Really good balanced complexity on the palate - floral with fruit and very strong (yet soft) tangy citrus notes, great acid. Good length. I thought this wine was much better served at a slightly warmer temperature than I would normally serve these types of crisp whites. It paired well wi... Read More

    Pops on the nose with an early rush of yeastiness followed by aromas of mineral talc, violet floral notes, light hints of peach and tangerine topped with a light minty note.This enters the mouth with a fair amount of richness and intensity, very round on the palate though with nice mineral/acid cut. There's a lot of peppery flavor here along wit... Read More

  • Gruner Veltliner Eiswein. Schloss Gobelsburg 2011


    The nose was intense yet soothing, showing ripe peach, hints of citrus, wet rock and stony minerals. On the palate, it was fresh yet lush, seeming to touch on all of the senses with notes of sweet stone fruits, citrus and inner floral tones. The finish was long, turning slightly tart, tinged with green apple and minerals. (93 points) Read More
