"My passion belongs especially to the Rotgipfler - the Rotgipfler and his Ried Mandelhöhe are a brilliant couple with a lot of future!"
- LORENZ ALPHART -
Native varieties quite extraordinary
LORENZ ALPHART deliberately plants Rotgipfler in the famous Mandelhöh single-site vineyard. This rarity is also found in his new Pressweingarten vineyard - and both wines are now among the most exciting in the region. One is delicate, unusually salty and firm, almost Burgundian, the other has intense tropical fruit and spicy roasted aromas. A comparison shows precisely how different terroirs can be expressed with the same grape variety. This is a high art and a real ace up the sleeve of this young winemaker.
Another of Lorenz’s favourite varieties comes from a premium location: his Zierfandler thrives in the Otzler vineyard. It's a real pleasure when someone brings these quite complicated varieties so typically, and yet new, into the wineglass.
When asked about the secret of his wines, the ambitious winemaker says dryly: “Length instead of breadth.“

Rotgipfler is a crossing of Traminer and Roter Veltliner, and is related to Grüner Veltliner (hence its synonym Weißgipfler). Likewise with Zierfandler, Rotgipfler is a speciality found virtually only in the Thermenregion. Warm south-facing vineyard sites with good calcareous-based soils are necessary. With strict yield control, the wine shows a high extract content, pleasant acidity and a fine bouquet. It tends to age slowly and is often blended with the varietyZierfandler.
