ZIERFANDLER-ROTGIPFLER GUMPOLDSKIRCHEN 2021

£16.50


Bright yellow. Pure tropical fruit on the nose. On the palate a hint of mango underlaid with lime. Delicate white nougat, balanced, already well drinkable. Powerful, with great ageing potential, a long-distance runner!

On the variety and origins of this wine:
At the heart of the famous white wine producing region of the Thermenregion, south of Vienna, the Klosterneuburg Monastery Wine Estate has been growing the two native varieties Zierfandler (Spätrot) and Rotgipfler for decades. The vineyards in Gumpoldskirchen are home exclusively to these unique »south-of-Vienna« varieties, which do particularly well in the lime-stone rich brown earth soil there.

Wine Estate of Klosterneuburg Monastery:
Since its foundation in 1114 Klosterneuburg monastery has been growing wine and therefore is the oldest wine estate of Austria. With 108 Hectares of vineyards it is one of the country‘s largest and most renowned estates. The vineyards are situated in selected top locations in Klosterneuburg, Vienna, Gumpoldskirchen and Tattendorf.
