    Winemaker Notes

    Fresh, lively and jumps out of the glass. A blend of aromatic Musaketeller, herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc and spicy rice Welschriesling. It is light on its feet, quite aromatic and has an inviting lemon merengue pie finish.

    Dürnberg in the picturesque village of Falkenstein is managed by winemaker Christoph Körner together with his friends and business partners Matthias Marchesani and Georg Klein. “The three from Dürnberg“ are true wine enthusiasts and therefore constantly aim at the creation of wines with strong character that unite the traditional and the modern in a refined, sophisticated way. The mixture of limestone and loam comprise the typical wine soil – the terroir - of the region. Elegance, complexity on the palate and cool minerality are rooted here.

    No matter which measures are taken in the vineyards, the sustainable use of natural resources is at the forefront of Dürnberg´s care. As every detail of the vineyards is known, the team has formulated their own rules of eco-management. Only resources that are permitted for “controlled integrated production” are used. Because of this sustainable management, the Dürnberg team is proud of their healthy old vineyards with up to 60 years old vines! Dürnberg Winery is a “Leading Wine Producer“of the Weinviertel region and certified for its sustainable production.

    Appreciated for superior wines made from indigenous varieties, Austria should be on the radar of any curious wine drinker. A rather cool and dry wine growing region, this country produces wine that is quintessentially European in style: food-friendly with racy acidity, moderate alcohol and fresh fruit flavors.

    Austria’s viticultural history is rich and vast, dating back to Celtic tribes with first written record of winemaking starting with the Romans. But the 20th century brought Austria a series of winemaking obstacles, namely the plunder of both world wars, as well as its own self-imposed quality breach. In the mid 1980s, after a handful of shameless vintners were found to have added diethylene glycol (a toxic substance) to their sweet wines to imitate the unctuous qualities imparted by botrytis, Austria’s credibility as a wine-producing country was compromised. While no one was harmed, the incident forced the country to rebound and recover stronger than ever. By the 1990s, Austria was back on the playing field with exports and today is prized globally for its quality standards and dedication to purity and excellence.

    Grüner Veltliner, known for its racy acidity and herbal, peppery aromatics, is Austria's most important white variety, comprising nearly a third of Austrian plantings. Riesling in Austria is high in quality but not quantity, planted on less than 5% of the country’s vineyard land. Austrian Rieslings are almost always dry and are full of bright citrus flavors and good acidity. Red varietal wines include the tart and peppery Zweigelt, spicy and dense Blaufränkisch and juicy Saint Laurent. These red varieties are also sometimes blended.

    With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
