Food Pairings for Josef Umathum Traminer
The estate is centred around Fraunkirchen, on the north-eastern side of Lake Neusiedl. Josef Umathum is one of the best-known estates in Burgenland with a high reputation for the red Zwiegelt varietal and also for sweet wines. The soils of Umathum's 62 hectares are warm, and the soil and terroir are particularly suited to the growing of high quality wines such as the local St. Laurent, a variation of Pinot Noir. Around the village of Frauenkirchen the soil is rich in minerals and has a high iron content, while conditions in the vineyards located on the north shore of Lake Neusiedl are sandstone and slate. Umathum continues cultivation of the traditional terraced vineyards in the village of Jois, and these vineyards were first cultivated as early as 1214. An unusual and very exotic white wine, this Austrian beauty has an aroma of roses and a full and subtle taste. Persistent, impressive and full-bodied but totally dry. Fantastic with highly spiced foods. Jancis Robinson gives this wine 17 points and says, "Pungent and correct with very flattering rose petals and real concentration and nerve. Very good!"
