»I WOULD LIKE TO TASTE THE VARIETY, FINESSE AND POWER INHERENT IN OUR VINEYARDS - AND TO TRANSFER AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE INTO THE WINE WITH A GOOD DEGREE OF LIGHTNESS AND MAXIMUM QUAFFABILITY.« Johannes Trapl, winemaker winery Trapl

Grüner Veltliner

Grüner Veltliner vines thrive superbly on the prevalent soils of calcareous loess, loam and gravel around the wine villages Stixneusiedl and Prellenkirchen. The grapes are carefully handpicked, destemmed and pressed immediately – without maceration. After roughly 48 hours of settling, the must is removed from the sediment and fermented at 16 – 18 °C. It is then matured for 6 months in stainless steel tanks. The colour impresses with medium yellow-green and the nose seduces with inciting spice, hints of exotic fruit, green apples, white pepper and discreet floral aroma. This broad spectrum of fine aromas continues on the palate. An animating classic, perfect with cold starters, fish dishes and antipasti.

Pinot Blanc

The grapes for this Pinot Blanc grow exclusively in Stixneusiedl and display their whole splendour on the calcareous chernozem. The carefully handpicked grapes are destemmed and pressed gently after a 24-hour maceration. After settling for 48 hours, the must is removed from the sediment and then fermented at 18 – 20 °C. It subsequently matures for 3 months in stainless steel tanks with repeated stirring of the lees. Medium yellow-green colour is typical for this Pinot Blanc. It is discreet on the nose, but with aeration develops ripe stone fruit aroma reminiscent of peaches and apricots paired with delicate elderflowers. The palate is characterised by white peaches and hazelnuts, which continue on the aftertaste. This Pinot Blanc shows creamy Burgundian texture and possesses good ageing potential. It is perfect accompaniment to crustaceans and fish.

Zweigelt

Zweigelt vines thrive around Stixneusiedl on particularly calcareous chernozem, loess and loam soils. The grapes are picked manually. Then they are destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. After a maceration of 8 - 10 days they are pressed gently. The Zweigelt matures in stainless steel tanks for around 7 months. No cultivated yeast, bacteria or other additives are employed. The Zweigelt satisfies with dark ruby colour and bright highlights. The nose exhibits youthful sappiness and aromas reminiscent of peonies followed by cherries. The taste is characterised by Morello and cherry aromas. This Zweigelt pairs perfectly with light pasta and poultry dishes.

Blaufränkisch

The grapes for this Blaufränkisch grow in Stixneusiedl and Prellenkirchen. This finely ripened vineyard blend is handpicked and macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks. After 12 days it is pressed and matured mainly in stainless steel tanks. A smaller part is matured in used small oak barrels. The wine seduces with its clarity, dark colour and bright rim. Red berries and plum dominate the fragrance. It is youthful and fruit-driven. The texture is succulent and well-balanced. The velvety tannin, ripe berry fruit and plummy nuances are characteristic for this wine. Its subtly spicy finish makes it a perfect with roast meats or pasta and, if slightly chilled, also light fish dishes.

Cuvée Carnuntum

Cuvée Carnuntum is a composition of Zweigelt and Blaufränkisch in equal shares. The vineyards are situated in Stixneusiedl and Prellenkirchen. The handpicked grapes are fermented at 28 – 30 °C in stainless steel tanks. The following 10-month maturation takes place partly in used barriques. The blend impresses optically with dark ruby red and a violet rim. Morello and cherry aromas dominate the nose with underlying berry jam. On the palate, intense blackberry and dried plums play the leading role. The silky soft tannin harmonises perfectly with the fresh and lively finish. Our Cuvée Carnuntum is ideally paired with pasta, poultry or pork dishes.

Rubin Carnuntum

The Zweigelt grapes for the Rubin Carnuntum are picked by hand. Afterwards they are destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. After a maceration period of 8 – 10 days they are pressed gently. The maturation in stainless steel tanks and 30 % in small oak barrels lasts for 10 months. No cultivated yeasts, bacteria or fining agents are employed. The Rubin Carnuntum is characterised by dark deep ruby garnet colour with opaque centre as well as by decent brighter rim and violet reflexes. Dark wild berry jam, ripe heart cherry and hints of dark chocolate comprise a seductive bouquet. Blackberry and discreet herbal spice join the other aromas on the palate and are elegantly highlighted by succulent acidity. The tannin is perfectly integrated and carried by lively spiciness. The finish cumulates in blackberry, dark chocolate and delicate tobacco spice. This versatile wine is perfect with BBQ, steaks or game. It possesses great ageing potential.
