Steirischer Junker

Branded wine protected in the generic wine-growing region of Styria(Austria), which can be recognised by the Junker hat with a chamois beard on the capsule and, if applicable, also on the label (the so-called "Steiermark bottle"). It is mainly produced as a white wine from different varieties pure or as a cuvée, preferably from Müller-Thurgau, Sämling 88 (Scheurebe) and Traminer, but there is also a Schilcher and rosé and red wines. All criteria for quality wine are necessary. It must be vinified dry (max. 4 g/l residual sugar) with max. 12% alcohol by volume and must not show any botrytis or barriqueton. The initiator in 1995 was the market association "Steirischer Wein", which in 2015 was merged into Verein Wein Steiermark, which has now taken over the sponsorship. There are around 300 winegrowers who produce wines under this brand. They are always presented on the Wednesday before Martini, which is celebrated on 11 November. See also under Junker.
