NEUSIEDLERSEE NEW AUSTRIAN ‘DAC’
Fresh news from the © AUSTRIAN WINE MARKETING BOARD (AWMB):
April 5, 2012 – A decree issued by Austria’s agricultural and environmental ministry has declared that, as of March 28 2012, certain region-typical quality wines from the Burgenland starting with the vintage 2011 can be released on the market under the appellation Neusiedlersee DAC. While the Neusiedlersee DAC is now the eighth Austrian appellation with DAC status, it is also the first DAC to focus on the dominant domestic red grape variety, Blauer Zweigelt. “Through the new Neusiedlersee DAC, fruity and harmonious red wines marked by local climate and soil characteristics should be emphasised and their level of awareness raised,” says Andreas Liegenfeld, head of the Regional Wine Committee in Burgenland.
