Styria Wine

Styria, otherwise known as Steiermark, is the southern-most wine producing region in Austria. Unlike many other Southern grape-producing areas, the focus here is on whites rather than reds. The climate is largely Mediterranean and the region is known for brilliantly-fresh and elegant wines. A specialized focus on Sauvignon Blanc is complimented with other white varieties such as Chardonnay (known as Morillon here), Welshriesling, Traminer, Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris/Rulander.) Here, the wines are often fuller-bodied than their northern counterparts and rich with minerality due to the fossilized seashells in the soil. In November, much like in Beaujolais, a young wine known as a “Junker” is released which is a light-bodied, freshly acidic wine. In the spring, the “Klassik” wine is released which are those displaying intense varietal character with no oak aging. After a bit of patience, the “Lagen” wines are released which are usually produced from late-harvested/very ripe grapes from established Read more »

  • Walter Skoff Sauvignon Blanc Royal 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Amazing smell! I've never smelled and tasted such a wonderful white barrique wine like this! I like wines which are fermented and/or aged in an oak barrel but I've never tasted neither a red nor a white wine which was so intensive like this. The result of a deep nose of oak is a wine with exact 14.5 % vol - Try it!! Read More
