In the "Old" line of products you will find a brandy and two grappas, which have their time spent in the barriques to thank for their aroma, style, and deep, warm color. Purist Florian Rabanser uses small oak barrels, which were previously used by the winemakers of Austrian Burgenland in the manufacturing of their sweet wines, for storage during the maturing process.
The multifaceted fruit scent of the Riesling is also present in this grappa. It has notes of peach, apricot, quince, and green apple. It tastes full-bodied and characteristic, at the same time, it is surprisingly smooth.
The pure variety of rum is manufactured without added sugar or flavors and smells of the aromas of leather, tobacco, dried fruits, and sultanas. It tastes mild and "feinherb" (on the dry side).
These Grappas are distilled grape skins deriving fully ripe and absolutely healthy grapes grown in the Neustift estate, grape skins which yield single grape brandies characterised by clean, pure, clear-cut varietal character.
Gewürztraminer grappa is a noble and special product of our firm. It is rare and exclusive and has a unique aroma and flavour thanks to the distillation of unpressed Gewürztraminer grape marks. Gewüztraminer is a South Tyrolean vine growing in the area of the Wine road (Weinstrasse) around Tramin.
