Feiler-Artinger Neuburger 2015

New release! Description coming soon! Biodynamically farmed.
SKU: 2682



In case you speak German, just until we have the English description available! Der Neuburger ist eine alte österreichische, autochtone Rebsorte. Sie erbringt wunderschöne elegante Weine, die im Abgang eine typische, höchst angenehme Herbe, das so genannte "Nusserl", aufweisen. Im Weingarten stellt der Neuburger höchste Ansprüche an die Pflege und Sorgfalt der Winzer. Daher geht der Anbau immer mehr zurück. Derzeit sind nur mehr etwa 250 der 44.000 Hektar der österreichischen Rebfläche Neuburger. Wir lieben Neuburger und haben daher mehr als 1.5 Hektar im Anbau! Der Neuburger liebt trockene, warme Jahre, wie 2015.

region Burgenland



Burgenland is made up of 4 "sub-areas" and covers 19,215 hectares, which is about 48,000 acres. The dominating geographical influence here is the Neusiedler Lake (Neusiedlersee), and the 4 subdivided areas are called Southern Burgenland (Südburgenland), Central Burgenland (Mittelburgenland), Neusiedler Lake (Neusiedlersee) and the Neusiedler Lake Highlands (Neusiedlersee-Hügelland).

From the northernmost Neusiedlersee area comes full-bodied white wines, including the countries best Chardonnays. This is also an area where great red wines are produced, including those from the "Pannobile" co-operative who age their wines in oak.

Due to the vineyards proximity to the lake and their location in the hot Pannonian climate zone, their grapes more often than not develop the "noble rot" (botrytis cinerea) which creates heady dessert wines. The region stretches along the Hungarian border, right across which Tokaji is being made.

The town of Rust, in the Neusiedler Lake Highlands, is where the famous Ruster Ausbruch dessert wine is made. This is also where storks come to roost every year, building their enormous nests on the roof of every building along the main roads. They make a clicking sound which is somewhere between a woodpecker and a jackhammer, and as you sit at the Heuriger (wine garden) drinking the afternoon away, the potential cacophony becomes something of a symphony.



We are at the west side of the Neusiedler Lake.The Austrian wine establishment has now begun to call this region Leithaberg, after the local hillsides themselves, although it is hard to imagine winegrowing in this region without the beneficent influence of the lake.

The free city of Rust has been famous for its sweet wines for centuries, now producing memorable reds and dry whites as well.

The towns of St Margarethen, Donnerskirchen and Grosshöflein are all proving to be sources of excellent grapes from the varieties Blaufränkisch and St Laurent, as well as for the more surprising Sauvignon Blanc.

The major municipality Eisenstadt is the capital of Burgenland; the area has been settled since the early Iron Age, and evidence of viticulture exists in Celtic hill burials from nearly three thousand years ago.
