Permitted designation in Austria for certain quality wines. It may only be used for vintage wines with the best recognisable characteristics with regard to their varietal character and origin. The provision that information on the selection criteria must be included on the label was eliminated in 2018. However, this designation is not permitted for Prädikat wines. See other designations of the same or similar terms under Austria at the section "Other wine designations", as well as under special wines.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
