Christian Fischer is widely regarded as one of Austria’s top red wine makers. He grows a mixture of indigenous and international grape varieties and the internationals are often cited as outstanding examples of how Austria can excel at these.
Perhaps best known within Austria is his 'Gradenthal', a blend of mainly Zweigelt with some Cabernet Sauvignon and a little Merlot. Also outstanding is his Cabernet-Merlot blend, an Austrian Bordeaux blend with much personality.
For me it is the single variety Blauer Portugieser, St. Laurent and Zweigelt that really shine, especially the '100 Cases' no compromise wines which he makes in exceptional years.
The Fischers also run an outstanding Heurige (restaurant) in Sooss where their wines can be sampled along with fine regional food.
