Perhaps the most independent and certainly the most original rosé wine of Central Europe is planted almost exclusively in the wine-growing area of Weststeiermark. Only on the slate soils at the foot of the Koralpe does it reveal its inimitable bouquet of grassy, herbal spice. Racy acidity is predominant in the taste, grassy, piquant spice, very pronounced acidity. The extremely effervescent wines made from Wildbacher grapes should be drunk very young in any case. The Schilcher owes its name to its shimmering (Schillern) in an extremely wide variety of nuances, which extend from a pale grey-rosé to a powerful strawberry red. The Schilcher is particularly fine as an apeéritif or accompaniment to a hearty snack.
