Falstaff Wineguide Austria/South Tyrol 2021/22

Falstaff Wineguide Austria/South Tyrol 2021/22

At the Frauwallner winery, the winemaker and wine speak the same language: The grapes all originate from the volcanic region of Styria, the vineyards are tended to by hand, and each grape variety is vinified in its own unique way. Only wines of designated origin are produced here, and the experience as well as the consistency of Walter Frauwallner’s know-how lead to a potpourri of individual characteristics and a high regional recognition value. "A lot of wine in the glass, the terroir clearly recognizable and always a pleasure to drink" is how the father of two sums up his philosophy and puts it into practice in an impressive way in three lines.

Vulkanland Steiermark DAC" is the name of the wines classically vinified in steel tanks - easy to consume, but at the same time elegant and multifaceted. New in the range are the "Stradener Ortsweine" - expressive wines between Gebietsweine and Riedenweine. And then there are the wines of the chalky 1STK Ried Stradener Rosenberg site and the Ried Steintal site as well as the basalt Ried Altes Steinkreuz site and the heart of the winery: the GSTK Ried Buch site . These wines are deep and voluminous. Anyone who wants to experience the volcanic region of Styria in a vinophilic way will not get around these regional ambassadors.

In particular, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris, Morillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Traminer have consolidated the national and international standing of the family-run winery. Since 2018, the winery has been a member of the "Steirische Terroir und Klassikweingüter - STK". Manual work, sensitive foliage work, low yields and selective grape harvesting are obligatory. The development is determined by patience and time. The winery's Karbach farm shop is open for tastings. This year, the Trockenbeerenauslese Gelber Muskateller Ried Stradener Rosenberg 2017, was awarded with the highest Falstaff rating - world class. It doesn't get any better than this.
