Concentrated in flavour but still light in tannins. Hints of sweet tobacco and blackberries are present as well as beautiful fresh forest. Try it with roast duck or mushroom risotto!

The Steinthal is the oldest documented single vineyard of Velm-Götzendorf. Johannes’s oldest vineyard planted with Saint Laurent which used to be one of the most important grape varieties in the southeastern Weinviertel. Low yields of old vineyards with a huge root system also bring the advantage of consistently high quality; even in bad red wine years. Vinification is slow. Usually in open vat, de-steamed fermentation without immersion. Later aged for 16 months in 500 l acacia barrels.

Picture mother nature left in peace to do her own thing: Yes, that exists! In Velm-Götzendorf, now for more than 30 years, the biodynamic vineyard of the Zillinger family – first ran by Hans and now his son, Johannes – is an exceptional example of what ‘natural’ truly means. From home-made compost, to growing their herbs, they are guided by strong principles of biodynamic agriculture..

Johannes believes in letting nature going its own way. To help this process he aims to interfere in both vineyard and the cellar as little as possible. In his own words “if you work on healthy soil in the vineyard, you get healthy vines, which produce more exciting wines. And most of all, if you let the good things simply take their course in the cellar.”

Zillinger’s wines are quintessentially nature’s magic inside a bottle.
