Stadlmann Zierfandler 2016
Stadlmann's history of wine growing dates back to as early as 1778 when its founder Johann Stadlmann dedicated himself to the production of high quality wines on the southern outskirts of Vienna. The ancestors of the Stadlmann family have proved themselves innovative and skillful winemakers, with a special understanding of the outstanding soil of the Thermenregion. It was due to their knowledge and experience that the right vines were planted and grown in the right places. They were inquisitive and open to changes, yet always felt intrinsically linked with the region and its traditions. Every generation could build on the growing wealth of experience and expertise. Today 50 acre of predominantly old vines are cultivated under strictly controlled organic regulations. Stadlmann trusts in his feeling, his palate, his experience and that of his predecessors. No manipulation, but harmony with nature, this has been and will always be the credo of all the members of the winemker's family. Stadlmann relies on time-honoured methods as well as being open to new ideas, and it is this attitude that shows when it comes to the selection of traditional grape varieties for vinification: white and red wines are aged primarily in large and neutral wood barrels. As a result, characterful wines typical of variety and origin are crafted due to the skillful work and patience of the winemaker. The wines from the most valuable vineyards in the region Mandel-Höh, Tagelsteiner or Höfen are continuously honoured with great attendtion from international wine experts.
Wine EnthusiastThe scent of russet-pear peel on the nose is both pure and earthy. The palate shows a rounded texture despite the toned muscle of the wine. There is real concentration here, characterized by flavors of ripe pear and ripe citrus that bring lively juiciness to the palate. Texture and flavor draw you in, and the finish is pure and long.
