Kremstal in Austria becomes the first DAC on the Danube

>> Monday, January 14, 2008 The Austrian agricultural minister approve in December the DAC designation for Kremstal for wines made from Grüner Veltliner or Riesling. Kremstal thus becomes the first district along the Danube to get the DAC qualification (Districtus Austria Controllatus, similar to the French Appellation Controlée). It is split in two levels: Classic and Reserve. Classic is dry with medium alcohol and should have no oak or noble rot character. Reserve is fuller-bodied and may have some barrel tones and botrytis. There are previously three DAC regions in Austria: Weinviertel DAC (2003), Mittelburgenland DAC (2006) and Traisental DAC (2007).
