More about this wine

Why choose this
Discover Alzinger with his "entry level" wine. Don't drink too young.
Food matches
Cold plates with sausage and ham, pickled vegetables and horseradish. Cream cheese with fresh herbs. Boiled beef with oil and vinegar marinade and crusty farmhouse bread.

This wine is from the 8.5 hectare Frauenweingarten vineyard which lies between Oberloiben and Unterloiben. Located near to the river and which has primarily alluvial soil types yielding fruity rather than mineral wines. Typically the wine is a clear pale yellow colour with a fragrant nose of spice, pepper and hints of red berry fruit (strawberry, I think). The palate is sappy and juicy, principally very fruity but also with flavours of lentils and rhubarb, a hint of celery and a rich creamy texture.



In Depth

The translation of Frauenweingarten is loosely "women's vineyard" and the name goes back to the Nunnery in Dürnstein which is the large vineyard site in the commune of Dürnstein-Loiben. Its vineyards are in the Loiben basin featuring warm soils composed of sands washed out of the Danube and partially interspersed with gravel.

Tasting Notes

Typically the wine is a clear pale yellow colour, with a fragrant nose of spice, pepper and hints of red berry fruit (strawberry, I think). The palate is sappy and juicy, principally very fruity, but also with flavours of lentils and rhubarb, a hint of celery and a rich creamy texture.
