It was only a matter of time until the Weingut Dürnberg reached the first place at the wine show. Already in the past, the company from lower Austria showed dormant potential in the wines: according to the fourth rank with the Pinot Blanc reserve (expert rating: place two) white burgundies, and the first place in the expert rating with Blanc de noir, Zweigelt, sent the winery of this time a Muscat cuvée (Muskateller, Welschriesling, Sauvignon Blanc) in the race for Holland in the category and won the audience rating.
Wide variety of wine
The topic „Austrian grape variety“ accordingly was by 200 guests on the river cruise ship „MS Alina“ Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Neuburger, mixed set, Rotgipfler, Sauvignon Blanc and just the Muscat cuvée from lower Austria and Burgenland tasted blind. The ex-farm prices were moving between 5.50 and 16.50 euros. The motto of the wine show is known: the wine, which consumed first, is the winner because he seems best to taste the most guests. Before the public tasting rated WIFI-Sommelierausbildner Hans Stoll, Hotel Manager Christian Dobnikar, Maître d‘ Hôtel Zlatan Pilipovic and OÖN his art Philipp Braun the wines as well concealed, and judged them according to the 20-point system. In addition, the experts divided the wines into three categories: fruit, aromatic varieties and Pinot Noir varieties. The Weingut Hirtl emerged as the winner of Poysdorf (Weinviertel DAC classic), the Weingut Dürnberg Falkenstein (Muscat Cuvée) and Ewald Diem from Hohenruppersdorf (Pinot Blanc). The decision was conceivably tight at the audience. Although at the beginning, many favored the variety of Riesling, Muscat cuvée tasted best at the end. The mixed set of Ludwig Ehn from Langenlois ended up in second place, behind a block on green Veltliners followed: Gerald Waltner from Engelmann Brunn finished third, Alwin Jurtschitsch from Kamp finished fifth the fourth and the winery Hellmer of Fels am Wagram. A nice success chooses Matthias Marchesani, who is responsible at the Weingut Dürnberg for distribution, taste. „Apart from the scores with Sternderln and grapes it arrives at the end of it, what tastes.“ In fact, the cuvée (7.50 euros) particularly well tasted both the audience and the experts. Light, smooth and refreshing. Pleasant to drink. No flavor bomb, but a wine that is to recognize that, but never intrusive and linked three varieties to a tasteful overall with a casualness plumpe. Fun while enjoying extremely. Only drawback. He’s gone faster than you think.
