In Austria, alternative designation for sprayed (also G'spritzter) under wine law. The term may also be used in conjunction with the name of a fruit as a compound term for flavoured drinks. These include strawberry spritzer, aperol spritzer, (aperol = bitter liqueur), triple spritzer (white wine, soda/mineral water, herbal lemonade), currant spritzer, Kaiserspritzer and peach spritzer.
However, the name is not protected and is also used in other German-speaking countries, such as Germany, with regional variations for different mixed drinks. Wine and/or fruit wine is mixed with fruit concentrates, liqueur and lemonades and sprayed with soda water or mineral water. See also other products under mixed wine drinks and special wines.
In the past, you needed a wealth of encyclopaedias and specialist literature to keep up to date in your vinophile professional life. Today, Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one of my best helpers and can rightly be called the "bible of wine knowledge".Prof. Dr. Walter Kutscher
