Falstaff Wineguide Austria/South Tyrol 2021/22

Falstaff Wineguide Austria/South Tyrol 2021/22

The Reinisch family is the fourth generation of winegrowers to cultivate vineyards in the most valuable locations around the traditional winegrowing villages of Tattendorf and Gumpoldskirchen. The special quality of the alluvial brown earth soils lies in their great permeability, which ensures quick drainage and rapid warming and thus eminently favours the ripening process of the grapes. The high lime content brings a pronounced chalky minerality to the wines and makes the Johanneshof Reinisch vineyards particularly suitable for cultivating vines of the Pinot family.

Pinot Noir, St. Laurent and Chardonnay are the main varieties on offer. In addition, Rotgipfler and Zierfandler are cultivated on suitable terroir in the nearby village of Gumpoldskirchen. The vinification of these wines, while preserving their beautiful varietal character, is just as concise as that of all the other wines from this renowned winery.

In accordance with the micro-climate conditions, about 60% of the wines from Johanneshof Reinisch are red, 40% are white and sweet wines. The ethos here can be seen in the personal attention of the vintners to the wine. The brothers Johannes, Christian and Michael Reinisch cultivate the vineyards according to organic guidelines, encouraging beneficial insects through cover crops and wild flower planting.
