Rotgipfler is a natural crossing between Traminer and Roter Veltliner originally documented in 1840 in Styria. This variety is quite rare and is almost exclusively grown in Austria. Rotgipfler prefers fertile medium weight lime soils and warm hillside locations. It is quite sensitive to winter frosts, prone to botrytis and often matures late. To the eye, the wine is golden-yellow, on the nose the pronounced bouquet is full of spicy, smokey nuances and stone fruits. Rotgipfler is often vinified dry, off-dry and sweet and is quite often blended with Zierfandler. Together with Zierfandler, Rotgipfler established the reputation of the famous wines of Gumpoldskirchen. – Description from Constance Chamberlain

And then later when I went back to drink it on its own again, I retrieved the stone fruit, floral... Read More

    Wine review by Nicki Gig

  • I am open to suggestions that are relatively easy to procure, on the dryer side, and have some level of complexity- I tend not to like a one-dimensional, flat wine.  At my last tasting of Asian influenced foods, I paired a Trefethern Dry Reisling, along with 2 other whites.  People liked it ok, but thought a bit sweet tho.  The white rhone blend...

    Very steely...I almost taste little shredded steel chunks. Not much fruit...very german/austrian. Great with any food that it would normally go with. Read More

    this was a great find; the nose changes from fresh white fruits like apples and pears not very different than what a nice Riesling might smell like and changes into a slightly flinty-chalky-ocean fresh seashell note, the mouthfeel is soft, vivacious, and fresh with just the right amount of acidity at the back end. YUM! Read More
