Steirischer Junker

Wine brand protected in the wine growing region of Styria (Austria), which can be recognised by the Junkerhut with Gamsbart on the capsule and possibly also on the label (the so-called "Styria 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 dry (max. 4 g/l residual sugar) with max. 12% vol. alcohol content and must not have any Botrytis or Barriqueton. Licenser and initiator was in 1995 the market association "Styrian Wine", which was merged into the association Wein Steiermark in 2015, which has now taken over the sponsorship. There are about 300 winegrowers who produce wines under this brand. They are presented each Wednesday before the Martini celebrated on 11 November. See also under Junker.
