This beautifully crafted wine is made from 100% Müller-Thurgau. The vineyards sit on the high plateau of Fennberg, protected from the northerly winds and ripened in a unique microclimate. At an elevation of 3,300 feet above sea level, these are among the highest Müller-Thurgau vineyards in Europe. The wine is named after Franz Philipp Freiherr von Fenner zu Fennberg, founder of the Austrian Kaiserjäger (soldiers of the Austrian emperor), who once used this picturesque Hofstatt as a summer residence.
About the Vineyard
The striking red soil is characterized by heterogeneous glacier moraine rock. At the middle levels, silty-loamy sand predominates, with some white and red marble as well as porphyry and granite foundlings. Dolomite and limestone are found in the deeper horizons. The soil's high salto content contributes to the fruit and herb aromas.
Light straw in color, the Feldmarschall offers intense aromas of stone fruits and crisp green apples with scents of jasmine and sage. On the palate, this beautifully balanced wine displays a rich minerality and zesty acidity that results in incredible finesse.
Extremely elegant and refined, the Feldmarschall pairs well with a vast array of lighter seafood dishes, especially oysters and sashimi.
