Thomas Straka conjures up a modern, Austrian style of wine

In the southern slopes of the Geschriebenstein, the young winemaking talent Thomas Straka is shaking up the tranquil wine village of Rechnitz. Between tradition and modernity, a modern Austrian wine style is created here that is both purist and lively.

Due to the strong temperature fluctuations between day and night, a microclimate prevails in that more northerly part of southern Burgenland that allows the grapes to ripen perfectly and produces cool, taut wines. Straka also counts himself lucky with his vines, which are up to 80 years old and clearly reflect the terroir, complexity and origin in the wines.

Welschriesling as the new superstar

In addition to the red Blaufränkisch, the focus in the winery clearly belongs to Welschriesling. Not to be confused with "Riesling", which despite the name is not related. The grape variety, which is especially widespread in Austria, is known as a tangy, uncomplicated wine with a green apple scent. And is usually considered a rather inconsequential grape variety. 

However, the potential of "Welsch" is impressively proven by Thomas Straka with his wines, which produce a wonderful complexity, structure, depth and an inviting play of aromas.
