Chardonnay

Chardonnay 2015

Manhartsberg, northwest of Schrattenthal, forms the border to the neighbouring Forest Quarter. This Chardonnay grows on three different southern slopes of this chain of hillls. Protected from the cool Forest Quarter winds, the vines are quite at home in the clay-and lime-rich soil. Our Chardonnay is partly aged in barrique barrels, thus producing a creamy, facette-rich consistency.

*Restrained aromas of melons, roasted nuts and almonds in the nose, needs some time in the glass, but then delivering a finish of ripe exotic fruits such as bananas, dense fruitiness and mineralic spices, highly refined stimulating acidity, delicated wood aromas discernible, juicy depth and superbly harmonious finish.

*Ideal accompaniment for numerous fish dishes such as calamari and shellfish such as lobster and crayfish as well as heavy sauces, but also grilled veal liver.

Grüner Veltliner Äußere Bergen WV DAC Reserve

Grüner Veltliner Äußere Bergen WV DAC Reserve 2015

The Aeussere Bergen is located some 280 m above sea level on a plateau that slopes gently eastwards. The soil consists mainly of deluvial deposits such as clay and silt as well as sand. Shielded in the west by the Huettberg, the vineyard is thus sheltered from the cool west winds. The Gruner Veltliner loves such conditions. We have selected very rare old Veltliner vines for propagation and subsequent planting-out. Thus year on year we achieve extremely complex wines.

*Extremely fine fragrance of exotic fruit, dense abundance of mellow, spicy aromas and generous body, ripe pears, pronounced mineral tones and a hint of tobacco on the palate, restrained hint of wood, extremely complex and sustained, nevertheless very close-knit and refined, needs lots of air, and then a gripping, seemingly endless spicy finish.

*Widely versatile as a culinary accompaniment.
Harmonises just as well with asparagus and veal as with light poultry, stuffed peppers and as dessert with Emmentaler cheese.

Riesling Innere Bergen

Riesling Innere Bergen 2015

The Innere Bergen vineyard is situated south of Huettberg, which forms the highest point in Schrattenthalal. Here the slopes are steeper and the soils barren and stony. This prime location lies between 270 and 300 m above sea level and faces south. The subsoil consists of granite with a very sparse covering of humus. On this primary rock site the Riesling really shows all its class. Here, too, we have planted out various old selections of Riesling vines.

*Complex fragrance of flowers and ripe stone fruit, hints of mineralic herbal spices, delicate smoky finishes very clearly stemming from the terroir, boldly lingering on the palate, juicy fruits, vast depth, definitely needs time in the glass, long, powerful finish.

*Superb accompaniment for grilled meat dishes, goose, duck and wildfowl, or fattier fish such as salmon and catfish, sushi and sashimi, as well as riper white and red mould cheeses.

Schrattenthal 9 2015

This blend of Zweigelt, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon is created using only the highest quality grapes from our best red wine vineyards around Schrattenthal. The role models for this wine are naturally the noble French Bordeaux. And this very distinctive red wine also presents itself as equally complex, elegant and long-lasting on the palate.

*Elegant fruit, reminiscent of red berries, extremely multi-layered, alluring extract sweetness, complex, lots of spiciness and tobacco, structured with full-body on the palate, with exposure to the air it becomes increasingly charming, stimulating and fruity with long, harmonious finish.

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir 2013

Since commencing propagation of it in the mid-Eighties, the Zull winery has produced superb quality wines with this varietal year on year. The Pinot Noir vine is extremely demanding regarding soil and climate and only feels at home in cool regions. We have planted various French clones on our prime locations, for only there can they achieve their finesse-rich fruitiness and elegance.

*Fine aromas of raspberries and subtle spicy notes, reminiscent of moist forest floor, elegant and fruitily charming, refined spices on the palate, subtly structured tannins, rich in character and extremely tight texture, unmistakable varietal aromas, widely-complex structure and demanding, wonderfully harmonious, long finish characterised by the Wine Quarter terroir.

Beerenauslese Riesling

Beerenauslese Riesling 2006

This wine results from the selection of the botrytised grapes that remain somewhat longer on the vine following the harvesting of our dry Riesling. We are not able to harvest this type of sweet wine every year. Role models for this wine are the “grand cru” wines from the Rheingau and the Mosel. This Riesling grows on our two primary rock sites Innere Bergen and Steinbreiten, and is in no way inferior to its two famous German couterparts.

*Fine intensive fruity nose of apricots, peaches and roses, multifaceted sweetness with juicy acidity and lots of spiciness, initially compact on the palate, then expanding fruity bloom, concentrated and powerful, harmonious interplay of sugar and acidity, long, brilliant reverberation, reiterated iots mineral notes in the finish

*Kaiserschmarren (chopped-up raisin omelette) with stewed plums, ice cream or desserts with local fruits – or simply for drinkling on its own.
