Zierfandler - Organic Wines

Zierfandler - Organic Wines

"Zierfandler is Chenin-like both in its juxtaposition of opulence with brightness and its spiced quince and citrus flavours.” David Schildknecht (from Robert Parker's famous 'Wine Advocate').
Organic wines mean wine produced with grape grown organically thus without addition of industrial pesticides or herbicides in order to respect nature. No manufactured chemical products will be used and winegrowers need to find alternative solutions such as spraying orange essential oil to repel certain insects, using diversion tactics. It takes more time to care about an organic vineyard as, for example, many actions need to be done manually in order to preserve life in soil and not compact them with a heavy machine going between the rows. 

Zierfandler, also known as Spätrot (late red) is a white grape. Only some 100 hectares are grown making it very rare.

Probably originally from Lower Austria and now grown almost exclusively in Thermenregion, it is the mainstay of the wines from Gumpoldskirchen, with Rotgipfler.

The wines are golden yellow and have a fruity bouquet with good acidity. Most is produced with some residual sugar and it is often blended with Rotgipfler. Recently however, it has grown in popularity as a single variety wine both in a dry style and as a sweet wine.

DNA profiling suggests that Zierfandler is a natural cross between Roter Veltliner and an offspring of Savagnin. It is not, as some think, related to Silvaner.
