Prieler, Kalkterassen Gemischter Satz, Burgenland


This delicious white is a pure and honest representation of the beautiful Burgenland in Austria. Medium-bodied a fresh, it is impressive in structure and flavour concentration with notes of white fruits, peach and blossom backed by spice and honey. Immensely enjoyable and highly versatile with food, it is an all-day wine - perfect with both lighter dishes and hearty cuisine alike.

This is a wine with a long history in Austria, but also in many, many other parts of the world. The notion of a 'field blend', where the vine grower harvests an entire field regardless of which varieties are growing there, and ferments them at the same time (or mostly). This is designed to represent the location and zonal typicities in a bottle. The winery is essentially saying "we grow this and that because it's what we've always done; this is what it tastes like to be in our place!". It's a really lovely and genuinely refreshing approach to winemaking. Honest and authentic.

The mix in this wine is a set of traditional grape varieties - Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Blanc, Welschriesling (different to 'our' Riesling), Grüner Veltliner and Muscat. They are grown on limestone soils near the meltingly picturesque Lake Neusiedl.

Georg Prieler manages the family estate that has roots in the townlad that date back to 1347. It was his grandfather, however, who was the first of the family to bottle wines made from their grapes. Since then the reputation for their wines has grown and grown; recently Georg was awarded Austrian winemaker of the year. Set across a variety of vineyard soils that are limestone, schist and chalk, this is a winery that gives clear and precise wines that are truly representative of their place.

Amazing service from the get go!
I emailed Chris looking for wine recommendations for a birthday gift. Got a really speedy, helpful reply and not only that but he hand delivered it on time to the birthday girl wishing her a happy birthday. Absolutely bowled over by the service. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Could not recommend The Allotment enough. The selection is fantastic and each wine that I've drank from them has been utterly phenomenal. Delivery was no hassle and I had the wine at my door in 2 days. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

A great experience ordering from The Allotment Wine Company. A wide variety of wines to try something new and at good prices with super quick delivery! Really convenient too as opposed to trying to find parking!
N. Dowling
Delicious and interesting range of wines delivered promptly to my door. Not far off that lovely feeling of coming back laden from a good wine store but without any of the traffic or the worry of breaking the wine en route (very impressive travel wrap).
