Falstaff Wineguide Austria 2022/23

Pleasure - elegance - joie de vivre: These are the cornerstones of Christian Reiterer's sparkling wine world. He recognized early on that the Blauer Wildbacher grape, with its intense fruit and refreshing acidity, is perfect for producing sparkling wines, and was the first to press Schilcher Frizzante and Schilcher sparkling wine three decades ago. "I've always been fascinated by the Blauer Wildbacher grape and its possibilities," says Christian Reiterer, an enthusiastic rider who also sees the future for the region in this tradition: "We have unique ageing potential here with these wines, resulting from the interaction of a variety, that is exclusively from this region, with our soils and our special climate influenced by the nearby Koralpe!"

Steep sites provide the perfect amount of sunlight and the cool winds from the Koralpe ensure a particularly intense aroma development in the grapes. This benefits the Schilcher, which is pressed here classically and as a single-vineyard wine from the Lamberg and Engelweingarten monopoles, as well as the fragrant, easy-drinking white wines from Welschriesling, Morillon and Sauvignon Blanc.
