Austria is a region with generations of wine history that has seen a resurgence in recent years. This marriage of tradition and modernity is encapsulated perfectly by the operation at Weingut Umathum, managed by Josef Umathum.
Through the cultivation of ancient vines on soils containing a unique blend of slate, lime, clay and gravel, the Umathum team produce a number of authentic red wines alongside an intriguing selection of whites.
But pick of the bunch are arguably Josef’s sweet wines, notably the Beerenauslese. A blend of Chardonnay and the indigenous Scheurebe grape variety, this perfectly balanced wine is golden yellow in colour and possesses delicious exotic fruit and honey blossom notes – simply a wonderful dessert wine.
