From: Thermenregion, Austria
Tasting Notes: The wine’s core of round, broad, melon-like fruit is given ample definition by a blatantly saline sense of minerality, and it possesses exceptional cling and concentration given its modest level of alcohol.
"Time to sit up and pay attention, because otherwise you might not pick up just how subtle and silky this floral dry white is. Discreet acidity, but the finish is long and very delicate. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. Screw cap.” –James Suckling, 93 points
Pairing: We’d recommend having this wine with Mushroom Ragout with Bread Dumplings, a dish commonly made in Austria as well as Germany. The delicate, umami flavors and herb-packed dumplings and sauce will complement the wine perfectly!
About. The House of Stadlmann is located in the Thermenregion, 20 minutes south of Vienna. The Thermenregion is among Austria’s warmest wine-growing areas; it is sheltered from the cold winds of the north by the Anninger (the last big foothill of the Vienna Woods) and influenced by the mild Pannonic climate from the southeast. In the Middle Ages, Cistercian monks recognized the value of the area’s terroir and established vineyards there.
The Stadlmann family has been making wine for seven generations in Traiskirchen, a town in Niederösterreich (Lower Austria). Winemaker Johann Stadlmann VII now tends to the estate’s 12 hectares of vineyards. Having also worked in Alsace, Germany and Alto Adige, Italy, he brings his expertise as one of the region’s key wine personalities. No manipulation and harmony with nature has always been the credo of the Stadlmann family.
Rotgipfler is a pale-skinned grape variety indigenous to Austria's Thermenregion. Back in the Hapsburg Empire it was noted as one of the Emperor’s favorite wines, and today the rare grape accounts for less than 7% of Thermenregion’s vines. Although Rotgipfler is used most notably alongside Zierfandler in a kind of traditional blended wine known as Gumpoldskirchen, this particular cuvée showcases the grape’s ability to stand on its own.
