Falstaff Wineguide Austria 2022/23

"When you exit the motorway in the direction of Vulkanland, the landscape changes, roads become narrower and the countryside gets noticeably more vast and lush. South of Bad Gleichenberg, a paradise opens up: the Krispel Winery in Neusetz near Straden. The temptations are manifold: from Mangalitza specialities to sweets from the in-house patisserie. Even more alluring, however, is the Krispel wine in all its splendour, typical of Vulkanland.

The new DAC system for Styria strengthens the characteristics of the individual regions. Stefan Krispel's Gebietsweine from Vulkanland are classic, fruit-driven wines light with pronounced varietal typicity. The second level of the provenance pyramid are the Ortsweine which are characteristically expressive of the indicative area and the pride and joy of Stefan Krispel. The wines are aged in large wooden barrels for up to twelve months and hence noticeably more structured, with a lively spiciness. The third level and the top of the pyramid: the Riedenweine. They are an expression of the soil and the mesoclimate of a vineyard. Common to all Krispels sites is the predominance of basalt topsoil and heavier basalt weathered subsoil. The Rosenberg site has the highest proportion of limestone in the middle of the slope, the Neusetzberg site, the highest red clay layer of limestone subsoil and on the Hochstrandl site the red clay layer is substantially deeper.

The different slopes, orientations and soils are suitable for varied grape varieties: Muskateller from the Rosenberg site vibrates with minerality, Sauvignon Blanc from the Neusetzberg is elegant, Pinot Gris from the Hochstrandl site has minerality with depth. The Pinot Blanc from Neusetzberg is pleasantly soft on the palate with alluring roasted hazelnut notes. These wines are all available from Stefan Krispel’s online store."
