By introducing the DAC (Districtus Austriae Controllatus) system of controlled designation of origin Austria has, for the first time, rated the origin of grapes as of more significance than the grapes themselves. The Weinviertel (a geographical region in Lower Austria) has taken a decisive step towards a new era of wine labelling and therefore the Grüner Veltliner typical of its dry, spicy-fruity taste and its high quality proudly shows its origin as a Weinviertel dac wine.
The Weinviertel is Austria's largest wine producing area; and indeed the Grüner Veltliner is the wine of the region with its 8000 ha, which accounts for more than 50 % of the vineyards. During the past years, the Grüner Veltliner received attention also in the international arena and it has increasingly become known as a high quality wine due to its spicy-fruity style. Understandable therefore that the Grüner Veltliner from the Weinviertel with its marked peppery taste has become Austria's first DAC wine.
The great Gruners from the Weinviertel are strong representatives of their origin, the best bearing the name of Weinviertel dac Reserve.
They will display vigor, expressiveness and aging potential to the optimum degree when matured in magnum bottles. They will then inherently reflect both in the glass and on the palate what makes them so distinctive. Their striking character is defined by climate and origin, by cool breezes blowing over the expansive wine landscape of rolling hills, and by the geological compositions of different soils on which they thrive.
