What is the Klare Wijn Podcast?
Klare Wijn is the name of the successful Instagram account of wine lover (and newsreader) Antoin Peeters. Recently he also makes a podcast together with his wine friend Ernstjan Overduin. In it you will hear the most fascinating stories from the wonderful wine world. Naturally, wine is also drunk, in keeping with the theme of the episode. We were allowed to select the wine for the Podcast, isn't it cool ?!
Episode 2: The Austrian Wine Scandal.
It is a story that many Austrian winegrowers do not like to be reminded of, but in Podcast 2 we still dare to talk about this 'open nerve': the Austrian wine scandal, which came to light in 1985. Caused by the huge demand for cheap, sweet wine; a question that wine producers couldn't meet and then started messing around. You will really be amazed at what happened in Austria and Germany at that time. A bizarre tale of fraud, imprisonment, dead fish, ruse, deceit and even suicide. A scandal that spread all over the world, but where Austria ended up miraculously well. The Austrian wine scene learned from its mistakes, passed the strictest wine laws in the world and now makes beautiful wines. What a scandal is not all good for! Have fun listening, and remember: "Zum wool, Glykol!"
Would you like to taste the discussed wines? Order them here in the special Podcast sample package. The package consists of the following tasted wines:
Wine 1 € 11.75 | Reichsrat von Buhl Bone Dry Riesling
It may be clear: at Reichsrat von Buhl in the Palatinate they love dry white wine. They do not find the term 'trocking' customary in Germany yet strict enough. A wine called 'trocken' may officially still contain up to 9 gr / L residual sugar. If we ask Von Buhl winemaker Mathieu Kauffmann what is dry, it is a wine with 0 to a maximum of 4 gr / L residual sugar. This Bone Dry Riesling only has 0.5 gr / L residual sugar and is nevertheless remarkably rich in taste. That is a very good performance for a wine with only 12% alcohol. Drink this wonderfully fresh, fruity, bone-dry Riesling as a thirst-quenching aperitif, or with light fish or chicken dishes, for example.
Wine 2 € 13.80 | Sepp Moser Gruner Veltliner von den Terrassen
Niki Moser belongs to the top of the Austrian wine division. Due to his idiosyncratic choice for biodynamic viticulture, he has managed to distinguish himself from other winemakers with his powerful and concentrated wines. An important characteristic is that the wines from Niki Moser only present themselves well after a few months of aging in the bottle. His advice is even to pour the white wines into a carafe. This is used by more and more sommeliers because it makes the wine considerably more aromatic. This grüner veltliner is one of the best wines from Sepp Moser.
Wine 3 € 11.65 | Karthauserhof Bruno Kabinett Feinherb
The historic Karthäuserhof winery, recognizable by its striking 'bare belly bottles', has existed since 1335, making it one of the eight oldest wine estates in the world. Almost 700 years later it is buzzing with new developments. The delicate Ruwer wines already enjoyed cult status with wine journalists and sommeliers. But since the arrival of Mathieu Kauffmann, former winemaker of Bollinger Champagne and Palatinate domain Reichsrat von Buhl, the wines have become even more in the spotlight. This beautiful Kabinett, bottled by Kauffmann, is a gossamer and impressive Riesling with a unique sweet-sour balance. The grapes come from vines on steep slopes in the monopole Karthäuserhofberg. They are picked by hand. The Kabinett Feinherb has a delicate scent of exotic fruit and a very seductive taste.
Wine 4 € 16.95 | Weingut Juris Burgenland Sankt Laurent
Axel and Herta Stiegelmar of the Weingut Juris make refined, elegant and easily drinkable red wines. The vineyards are located in the warmest part of Austria: in the town of Gols, on the northern side of the Neusiedlersee. Do you like elegant red wines that have the ripeness, but not the power and sultry of wine from, for example, Mediterranean regions? Then this is a good choice. The Sankt Laurent from Juris has pure fruit notes and a very modest wood scent. The wine matures in large 500-liter oak casks that refine aroma and taste. The sankt laurent grape is typically Austrian and quite rare. Worth trying!
