    Winemaker Notes

    Named after the Danube River where wine has been cultivated for over two thousand years. A pleasantly fresh and fruity, light and well balanced Gruner Veltliner

    Soellner, Austria
    Image of winery
    Toni Sollner is a small-scale producer of handcrafted Bio-dynamic (Demeter) wines in the hills of the Donauland now called Wagram, looking over the Danube valley just to the east of the Kamptal. The vines grow on terraces of loess (some of the deepest deposits in the world), mussel-chalk, and red gravel, amidst herbs, legumes and wild flowers. The wines are aged in large oak foudre in the traditional Austrian fashion. These are very well balanced, very natural tasting wines, textured wines. The Wogenrain is a superb value, the Hengstberg being similar to a good Wachau, and all the wines have expressive minerality. Working in harmony with nature, with Daniela, his wife, Tony Sollner is not following a fad, but has practiced his biodynamic farming since 1995.

    Appreciated for superior wines made from indigenous varieties, Austria should be on the radar of anyone who loves bright, elegant wines. These food-friendly, cool-climate reds and whites are quintessentially European in style with racy acidity, moderate alcohol, and tart, fresh fruit flavors. Austrian wines are prized for their near-uniform dedication to excellence, and it is now difficult to find a bad bottle.

    Rather than joining in on the worldwide trend to plant international varieties, Austria has chosen to stake its reputation mainly on its native grapes. Grüner Veltliner, known for its racy acidity with herbal and peppery aromatics, is the most important, comprising nearly a third of Austrian wines. Riesling in Austria is high in quality but not quantity, planted on less than 5% of the country’s vineyard land. Unlike their German counterparts, Austrian Rieslings are almost always dry, with higher alcohol, slightly lower acidity and bright citrus flavors. Field blends of these two grapes along with Pinot Blanc and other white varieties are known as Gemischter Satz and are popular for daily consumption in Vienna. Red varietal wines include the tart and peppery Zweigelt, spicy Blaufränkisch and juicy Saint Laurent.

    Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of white grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal, Spain, Italy and Greece are known for having a multitude of unique varieties but they can really be found in any region.
