Hommage, Abendrot (sunset glow) and Herzblut (heart´s blood): If it´s red wine – it must be WEINWURM´

A Weinviertel wine grower does not live from Veltliner alone. But to vinificate red wines at the same quality level as whites makes Weinwurms extremely proud.

Particularly our Zweigelt Hommage 15 won brilliant ratings in the Falstaff Red Wine Guide. With 91 points Peter Moser described our former Hommage ZWEIGELT Reserve 2015 with „inviting berry fruit“, „mineral finish“ and finally as „multi-faceted food pairing“.

As if this wouldn´t be enough reason for crows of delight it has to be mentioned that this Zweigelt is only vinificated in perfect years and, up tp now, every vintage has convinced professionals and connosieurs alike. Have a look at a short survey: 90 points at the IWC Chicago in 2006, Salon winner of the category Zweigelt in 2009, listed in the Salon Austrian Wine in 2011 and with 92,6 points confirmed as best Austrian red wine in Germany at the Mundus Vini followed by the vintage 2012 winning the Premium Gold Prague Wine Challenge and IWC Tasting Chicago Gold, and now the 2015 vintage with 91 points at the Falstaff tasting, a gold medal in Frankfurt at the International Trophy and described by Jancis Robinson as follows: „„Deliciously fresh and one of the most food friendly wines I have had this year.“ In short: Weinwurms´ homage to the variety Zweigelt.

 
It would never cross our minds to rejoice about our grape diversity if we had only one excellent red wine to present. In fact there are three. At Least. The Abendrot SYRAH Ried Schilling 2016, a variety which captured Georg Weinwurm´s imagination during his practical year in Australia, and the Herzblut MERLOT Ried Schilling 2016 were Mr. Moser worth 90 points and in addition a best-buy-recommendation.

We produce Merlot since the early 90ies and it has developed to our second important red wine behind the Zweigelt. At the beginning of 2000 we have started to plant Syrah. Our Syrah matures in used French 220 l for one year – Barrique barrels.
 
Rare varieties in Austria, even more rare in the Weinviertel district and rarest with high ratings by internationally known experts – that makes us happy! And our two exotic varieties could be even capable of more if you think about what Mr. Moser stated: they are „at the beginning of their development“. What could be expected in one, two or three years?
Therefore, Georg Weinwurm´s secret tipp: ensure your quantity of Australian Abendrot and Georg Weinwurm´s personal Herzblut right now.

Last but not least we have to point out the forth moment of happiness. With 89 points the Glücksmoment ZWEIGELT Ried Schilling 2017 (moment of happiness) was included in the very-good-ratings. Peter Moser descernes  bitter chocolade, herbal spices, cherries, freshness and a tiny pinch of salt in this Zweigelt.
 

To get excellent ratings at this year´s Gruner Veltliner Grand Prix made us really happy but to succeed with our red wines aswell proves that Weinwurms´variety range qualifies us as one of Austria´s top vintners.

They are ripe! The grapes of our young yineyards are ready for harvesting. This year we started harvesting as early as never before. And as it should be in a family estate every one played his part.



Mama Hermine has the overview in the vineyard. And not just at harvest time!

Two Bronze Medals at the International Wine Challenge

On a nationwide level, our Meinviertel WEINVIERTEL DAC GrÜner Veltliner 2017 belongs to Austria´s top wines, that´s what the Salon Austrian Wine says. On a regional level, our Meinviertel WEINVIERTEL DAC Gruner Veltliner 2017 belongs to the region´s top wines, that´s what the Lower Austria Wine and the Poysdorf Wine Parade say.

It´s phantastic to come out on top of 1000s of top wines. But the international  competition is even more challenging, even more diverse. Thus, two Bronze Medals at the International Wine Challenge approve that Great Britain classifies our Meinviertel WEINVIERTEL DAC Grüner Veltliner 2017 and Liebkind WEISSBURGUNDER Single Vineyard Schilling 2017 as one of the top wines worldwide. Additionally our Hommage ZWEIGELT Reserve 2015 is one of the wines recommended wine by the IWC.

The International Wine Challenge is one of the largest wine rating events in the world. And one of the most precious and important. To be awarded a medal the wine has to undergo three tasting rounds with at least 10 educated tasters. Vintage, grape variety and region are known, apart from this the tastings are absolutely blind. Seen from that angle we consider it a great honour to rank among the best, not only on a national and regional but also on an international level.



Bacchus Trophy for Meinviertel WEINVIERTEL DAC Grüner Veltliner 2017

A God for nearly godfull wines. No, we wouldn´t go so far. But we have reason to be proud of the highest prize the Poysdorf Wine Parade has to award. This year our Meinviertel WEINVIERTEL DAC Grüner Veltliner 2017 was awarded one of only 19 sought-after Bacchus Trophies at Austria´s largest regional wine rating event. And that´s not all: in 2016  our Zweigelt Reserve 2012 was among the trophy wines, in 2014 the Weinviertel DAC and in the years 2012 and 2010 the White Burgundy.

If this makes you believe that with so many awards in last years it is easy to gain such a trophy or that we were just lucky, your are wronkg. Two tasting commisions consisting of certified tasters and representatives of the Regional Winegrower´s Associations Mistelbach and Gänserndorf rate the more than 1.100 presented wines in the course of a blind tasting. The highest rated wines are again evaluated in the minutest detail during a final tasting round until 19 are left in the basket and gain the trophy.

 
That´s why the Poysdorf Wine Parade calls those wines „the best of the best“ in the whole region Mistelbach, Gänserndorf, West Slovakia and South Moravia. To belong to the not even 2% of the best has to be celebrated in a bacchanalian way: with a bottle of Meinviertel WEINVIERTEL DAC Grüner Veltliner 2017. Celebrate with us!

13 is a lucky number. Since 2006, thirteen years in a row, our wines were accepted at the SALON Austria Wine, the championship of Austrian Wine. This year we have even produced two SALON wines: the Meinviertel WEINVIERTEL DAC Meinviertel 2017 and the Spitzbub WELSCHRIESLING Spitzbub 2017.

Our Weinviertel DAC was accepted at the SALON already fo the second time. But the Welschriesling premieres in the liga of Austria´s 270 best wines. In fact, only 270 wines from Austria make it through the multistage tasting. It is not without reason that the SALON is regarded the hardest wine rating in Austria. We are really proud to be continously admitted every year since 2006, and, as a matter of fact, even with more than one wine, just as this year. And I almost forgot to mention: the Zweigelt Reserve was already SALON winner. SALON winners represent the 16 absolutely best wines in Austria.

And why is our lucky number also yourss?: You can be sure that WEINWURMs wines rank among the absolutely best in Austria and are above all of consistent quality.



Good Will - Much Skill – NÖ WEIN 2018

150 out of 5000. No, that´s not again one of the hardly feasible lotteries. In fact, it stands for the Lower Austrian Wine Prize. And furthermore, it has nothing to do with luck, in contrast to the lottery. A good deal more with terroir and skills, with the knowhow how to produce excellent wines. With experience and the foresight to manage the foreseeable drought stress in time; definitely a challenge in 2017. Well, and with a bit of luck two wines of one winery reach the finals of the Lower Austrian Wine. That is to say, the luck to own a winery directly in Dobermannsdorf where deep loess meets fertile black earth and warm Pannonian climate cool, continental air streams, a combination which creates perfect conditions for top wines.

 
This year, the Lower Austrian Wine Prize selected 150 finalists out of more than 5.000 wines handed in by 908 wineries. Weinwurms Spitzbub Welschriesling Ried Schilling 2017 and Meinviertel Weinviertel DAC Grüner Veltliner 2017 are two of those 150 top wines of Lower

Austria evaluated in the course of various really blind tastings. Furthermore, our Welschriesling came out as the forth best of its variety and our Meinviertel among the 25 best Gruner Veltliners of the category „light“. You have to try yourself? Come on, we are happy to welcome you at the winery.
