Rotgipfler
Definition:indigenous white wine variety in the Thermenregion

the Rotgipfler is a natural crossing of Traminer x Roter Veltliner, and it gets its name from the reddish, bronze shoot tips. The noble wines from Traiskirchen and Gumpoldskirchen excel with ripe, yet neutral fruit, with delicate herbaceousness and rich sweetness due to high extracts. Occasionally, one can find the blend of Rotgipfler and Zierfandler called "Spätrot-Rotgipfler“.
