Old vines are the happiness of every winemaker. They take deep roots and lend a lasting voice to their natural conditions. Pinot blanc has a long tradition in our area. Most of the vines were planted by my grandfather 60 years ago in the limestone of the Seeberg, and a few were planted by my great-grandfather 90 years ago. My task today is to finish telling the story that began with these two.
Pinot Blanc Schützen am Gebirge, Ried Seeberg
The white "Prieler classic": light golden yellow, delicate yellow pear and tropical fruit, a hint of mango, delicate meadow herbs, inviting bouquet, fresh acidity arch, lime on the finish, a perfect food companion.
Pinot Blanc Leithaberg DAC, Old Vines
Characterised by the warmth of Lake Neusiedl and the coolness of the Leitha Mountains. This Pinot Blanc smells of blossom honey and stone fruit. It is dense, juicy with a fresh acid structure and a lemony-mineral finish.
Pinot Blanc Ried Haidsatz
Bright yellow, an elegant bouquet of ripe fruit mixed with yeasty and spicy notes. Juicy, elegant and chalky, with a great blend of salt and tannins, The finish is spicy, long and champagne-like.
Pinot Blanc Ried Steinweingarten
"Light straw yellow, silver reflections. A hint of lime, fine white peach nuances, a hint of tropical fruit and vanilla, delicate meadow herbs, some lemon balm, attractive bouquet. Taut, tight-knit, fine white pear fruit, finesse-rich acidity, salty mineral, still some baby fat, great future potential, precise and clinging." Peter Moser (Falstaff)
Blaufränkisch is in our blood. By us I mean myself, my family, the winegrowers of the Leithaberg. We know their moods and are aware of their demands. Blaufränkisch is not an easy variety. Neither for us nor for you. It is capricious, demanding and headstrong. If it roots in limestone, it wants sun; if it grows on slate, it also demands fresh winds. It prefers to lie in wood, but the barrels should be used and not too small. It demands patience from you. Blaufränkisch needs time. If you give it time, you will understand why we fulfil all its wishes.
Blaufränkisch Oggau am Neusiedlersee, Johanneshöhe®
The red "Prieler classic": typical Blaufränkisch aged in large wooden barrels with a delicate herbal spice underlay, black berry fruit and a hint of orange zest. Juicy, fresh, red berry nuances, fine tannins.
Blaufränkisch Leithaberg DAC, Ried Pratschweingarten
Ripe dark forest berry confit, complexity, fine blackberry confit, integrated tannins, salty minerality and a lemony touch make the Blaufränkisch a silky food companion.
Blaufränkisch Ried Marienthal
Tells of a lightness of being, complexity and comprehensibility. Lovely red berry fruit, light spice, animating; on the palate dense, tightly meshed texture, balanced, firm and fine-grained tannin core, chalky finish.
Blaufränkisch Ried Goldberg
A Blaufränkisch that makes history. Fresh heart cherry fruit, a hint of blackberries, delicate floral nuances. Juicy, sweet fruit nuances, elegant, fine tannins, finesse-rich structure, very long lasting, safe ageing potential.
It was in the 12th century when Cistercian monks from Burgundy set up camp on Lake Neusiedl. They were not only Bible-tough, but also knowledgeable winegrowers. Consequently, it did not take long before they put out scions from their old homeland - Pinot Blanc anyway, but also Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, whose enormous potential we are still exploring today. 800 years later, my father set off in the opposite direction. He had taken a fancy to Bordeaux. Planted with passion, a little Merlot has also taken root at Schützner Stein since then.
Rosé from the Stone®
Very fragrant of light and dark red berries with a slight spiciness; lively, full-bodied and dense. Pure drinking pleasure - not only in summer, but also as an aperitif or with various light fish dishes.
Mixed grape variety Kalkterrassen
A piece of Austrian tradition. This Gemischter Satz made from traditional grape varieties from limestone soils near Lake Neusiedl captivates with its intense fruity-spicy note, reminiscent of blossom honey and vineyard peaches; juicy stone fruit nuances on the palate, lively and refreshing. A versatile food companion and an easy-drinking wine for every day.
Chardonnay Schützen am Gebirge, Sinner®
A classic Chardonnay with pronounced quince, Williams pear and biscuit; the elegant mineral spiciness continues on the palate, graceful, densely woven, full-bodied, creamy and full-bodied.
Merlot Schützner Stone®
The 100 % Merlot impresses with a deep dark colour, intense, multi-layered aromas, black cherry, sweet blackberry, delicate toasty notes and a rich, juicy and long finish.
Dark ruby, fine hints of spices, black berry fruit, nuances of cloves and orange zest; finesse-rich, juicy, elegant on the palate, finely balanced structure with well-integrated tannins. A wine with secure ageing potential.
