MONZINGER HALENBERG EMRICH SCHONLEBER 2010 * * * * *
€23,50

Al even romantisch zijn de terrassen aan de Nahe. De gronden zijn van dezelfde aard met vooral blauwe leisteen en kwarts. De aanplant in deze regio, in Zuidwest-Duitsland, is jonger dan die aan de Moezel. Emrich Schonleber heeft er 17 hectare wijngaarden. De kleinste wijngaard is Halenberg, die kleinere druiven voortbrengt met een exclusief aroma.

Het resultaat is een briljante wijn met een structuur als kantwerk. De citroengele wijn ontwikkelt intense geuren van rijp citrusfruit, perzik, bloemen en lichte kruiden, heel fijnzinnig en rasecht. De smaak is breed en verleidelijk met mooie zuren en een fraaie frisheid, tegelijk levendig, sappig, mineraal en frivool. Dit is een prachtige wijn, mooi afgewerkt en perfect in harmonie, met een zachte kruidigheid en smaakvol rijp fruit. Uitstekend bij asperges op z'n Vlaams.

Te koop bij Leirovins (Wetteren), 09/369.07.95, leirovins@telenet.be

ZALTO WIJNGLAZEN GEEFT VERKOOPSLICENTIE AAN LEIROVINS

WIJNKANAAL door Bruno Vanspauwen

Unieke wijnglazen ZALTO verkrijgbaar bij wijninvoerder Leirovins

Het wijnglazenbedrijf Zalto, gevestigd in Oostenrijk, is minder bekend en minder groot dan Riedel en Schott Zwiesel, maar onder wijnprofessionals is dit merk zeer gegeerd. Zalto slaagt erin functionaliteit en estetiek te combineren. Geur en smaak van een wijn komen er optimaal tot hun recht.
Zalto streeft naar technische perfectie en gebruikt nog altijd traditionele glasblazers. De glazen zijn dan ook ultrafijn en vederlicht. Toch mogen ze gewassen worden in een vaatwasautomaat.
In de streek waar Zalto is gevestigd, is de traditie van het glasblazen diepgeworteld. Het gaat terug tot de 14de eeuw. De curven en hoeken van Zalto glazen zijn in overeenstemming met die van de aarde. Daarnaast werd de ontwikkeling ervan beïnvloed door de kennis van Hans Denk, een priester die verschillende decennia wijdde aan de studie en het proeven van wijnen. Hij werd een van de meest gerenommeerde wijnexperten van Oostenrijk.
Ook Belgische wijnliefhebbers kunnen nu van Zalto glazen genieten, omdat wijninvoerder Leirovins erin slaagde om de verkooplicentie voor ons land te bekomen.

Another New Record for Austrian Wine Export Sales

Another New Record for Wine Export Sales

Dear Mr. Leirens,

The preliminary export figures released by Statistik Austria for March 2013 show that sales revenues for Austria's domestic wine sector reached yet another historic record in 2012. According to the figures, the total volume of exports reached 47.4 million liters with a total value of € 132.2 million, each reflecting an increase of approximately 5% over last year's totals. This is highly impressive, especially because expectations for the wine exports had been dampened because of the small 2012 grape harvest and the resulting higher domestic demand.

The reason for the continuous rise in export revenue and the record sales is the upswing in bottled wine exports and the simultaneous, significant drop in barrel (bulk) wine figures. In 2002, the amount of barrel wine exported (55 million liters) was nearly three times higher than that of bottled wine (19.5 million liters). In 2012, however, the quantity of bottled wines exported was five times higher than that of barrel wines (40 million liters of bottled wines; 7.3 million liters of barrel wines). This reflects the massive shift in market share of the single price categories both abroad and at home - the moving away from cheap products to the price-quality segments between € 3 and € 6.

"In 2012, Austrian winemakers significantly increased their quotas also in the most important export market, Germany," said Willi Klinger, general manager of the Austrian Wine Marketing Board. "In addition to strong increases in the main export markets of Germany, Switzerland, the USA and the Netherlands, ongoing export initiatives are bearing fruit in difficult markets like China and Japan as well."

The Austrian Wine Year 2012 - a Beautiful Vintage

The Austrian Wine Year 2012 - a Beautiful Vintage

Dear Mr. Leirens,

The 2012 vintage is bringing lovers of Austrian wine exciting, fruity and full-bodied wines. Beautiful weather conditions nurtured healthy and ripe grapes, even though the dry Summer heat created the need for plenty of attention later on in the cellar in order to ensure clean fermentation as well as fresh, pure aromatics and flavours. Also, the moderate acidity is requiring a certain sensitivity in the cellar in order to successfully bring out the spiciness together with the ripe fruit. Not only are the young wines triumphing with bigger fruitiness, but also many of the wines are showing excellent ageing potential.

Lower Quantity

Statistik Austria (Statistics Austria) estimates that the current harvest has yielded a total of 2.1 million hectoliters, which is around 400,000 hl lower than the five-year average. This can be attributed for the most part to the late frost in May, which created significant losses in Niederösterreich.

Niederösterreich (Lower Austria)

The late frost that occurred during the night of May 18th set a negative tone to the beginning of the season in Niederösterreich, especially in the Pulkautal (Pulkau Valley) in the Weinviertel, where more than 6000 young vines were affected. However, the Summer was dominated by dryness and moderate heat, which had a positive impact on the vegetation. The concerns of strongly reduced acidity could not yet be confirmed.
The weather for the harvest was similar to the constantly beautiful conditions of 2011, allowing the actual harvest dates to be set according to the degree of ripeness without fear of any approaching bad weather fronts.
Very healthy and loose grapes were picked wherever hail did not create any problems. Still, when it came to pressing in the cellars, the grapes gave sparing amounts of juice. Focused acidity management, also due to the allowing of the possibility of acidification this year, ensured good and clean fermentation. Thanks to the experience of the wine makers, there were fewer potential problems with fermentation. Difficulties could have occurred due to a lower nutrition content of the grapes caused by the dry Summer.
The only real downside was the low harvest in Niederösterreich, which totaled 1.1 million hl instead of the usual 1.6 million hl

Burgenland

The Burgenland clearly held the top spot when it came to the weather and the harvest. A Spring with good humidity followed the mild Winter. The sporadic occurrences of frost were quite bearable, as was the moderate dose of hail.  Early flowering led to an early harvest that began in the first half of August.
The result: a quantity that correlates with a good, regular vintage; in any case, the 750, 000 hl total is more than that of last year's harvest. The beautiful weather during the harvest allowed for a good working speed without any time pressure via threatening weather fronts or grape rot. The optimal health of the grapes made great quality possible, with the white wines turning out fruity, full-bodied and very clean and the red wines presenting themselves as deep, dark and yielding remarkable power. 
On both sides of the Neusiedler See (Lake Neusiedl), very good quantities of high quality Spätlese and Auslese grapes were harvested. The grapes for higher Prädikat levels - botrytised and ice wines - are still largely dependent on conditions yet to come in the vineyards. The next few weeks certainly will determine the 2012 sweet wine vintage.

Steiermark (Styria)

This year left a significant mark on Austria's most southern state. The late frost on Easter Monday led to a significantly smaller-than-usual-harvest of Muskateller.  The frost that occurred on May 17th -18th left only little damage. A more significant impact was made by dry weather conditions. July brought very different conditions regionally - from very dry to 300 ml rainfall. In Weststeiermark there were many thunderstorms, whereas in Südsteiermark, no thunderstorms of any kind were registered. 

The harvest began on August 20th, and from September 10th on, grape picking became more intensive: from this, it can be shown that wines with a high level of sugar will not be too high in alcohol and will maintain a good level of fruitiness. It was shown that the grapes remained very loose and the rain at the end of harvest did not leave any traces on the grapes. While this has meant that the quality of the wine will be very good, the harvest itself can be called average with a total of 195.000 hl.
The Styrian vintage 2012 can be characterised by beautiful spiciness and full body, with Sauvignon Blanc having ripe aromas and flavours, Muskateller as very aromatic and dense, and Weissburgunder having a captivating, strong and nutty character. Also the Steirischer Junker (the first young wine) can be expected to have plenty of fruitiness.

Wien (Vienna)

The weather conditions were considerate in the Vienna wine growing area. Only in Stammersdorf was there some damage - around 10 ha - because of the major frost night of May 17th - 18th. Other than that, there was no hail and the climate conditions remained favourable right up to the harvest. April brought enough warmth and even a rainy July could not harm the vines. This enabled a high quality vintage - one which the Viennese winemakers began earlier than usual in order to make wines that are fruity, full-bodied and with a moderate level of alcohol. Nevertheless, also in Vienna the quantity  remained below average, with a total of only around 22,000 hl.

"This year‘s wines are outstanding with their aroma and density," says Willi Klinger, general manager of the Austrian Wine Marketing Board. "The quantity losses affected mainly the Grüner Veltliner.  I hope very much that next year's harvest - 2013 - will be a normal one so that Austrian winemakers can develop their market share further and at interesting price levels."
