Gumpoldskirchner Tradition

  • Johanneshof Reinisch
  • Thermenregion, Austria

Method & Production

This Gumpoldskirchner Tradition is named after the historical village of Gumpoldskirchen and is blend of the two local grape varieties; Zierfandler and Rotgipfler. Both varieties are native to Austria’s Thermenregion. Johanneshof Reinisch aim with this wine is to produce a traditional product and express the uniqueness of these two white wine varieties in this one wine. The Zierfandler and Rotgipfler grapes are picked from different vineyards located in Gumpoldskirchen. They are fermented separately and blended to taste after fermentation is complete. The wine is put into large oak cask for four months allowing the varietals time to harmonize and mature before bottling. 

Tasting notes

Lots of fruit on the nose, tropical fruits, apricots and mangoes, touch of honey blossom. Fruit follows through on the palate and is balanced by a bracing acidity, giving the wine good tension.

Food matching

Goes well with lots of Asian dishes, especially pad thai, vietnamese prawn salad and Kerelan curries. Also can work well with foie gras and is a nice accompaniment to an aged gouda.
