ST. Martinus reg. Gen. m. b. H, Wienerstrasse 9, A-7082 Donnerskirchen
The winegrowing region around the Neusiedler lake (the only steppe-like lake in Central Europe), which is the home of ST.MARTINUS winegrowing association, has the best locations for growing naturally sweet white wines. Warm soil, Pannonia climate with lot of sun and very little rain, long summers and mild autumns are ideal for growing high quality wines. Unique is also the infection of reaping grapes by noble moulds, caused by the evaporation of water from the nearby lake and the resulting high humidity. These noble moulds are the basic ingredient for top class sweet wines. The Botrytis Cynerea mould, for example, causes the permeability of grapesí peel. This causes an increase in the concentration of sugar, juice, acids and aromatic components; the grapes shrivel and must weight increases.
to this, our noble predicative wines offer a unique balance between
sugar content, alcohol content and acid content. This harmony and
the high contents of extracts guarantee almost an unlimited
storability of the wine.
