Kalterersee: For years, it has been produced at a high level. However, many don't know it or don't want to or can't believe it. For them, the Kalterer is still a Brettljausen, hiker and tourist wine and not a serious drop. The opposite is the case: Kalterersee has been a wine to be taken seriously for some time now - but a pleasantly uncomplicated one. Starting with the 2010 vintage, the "Charta Kalterersee" label is intended to demonstrate this clearly and self-confidently to the outside world.
The "Charta Kalterersee
In February 2010, 19 local producers created a statute with which they would like to give their very own wine the status it deserves in their opinion by setting high quality standards and they committed themselves to bottling their "best Kalterersee wines under the quality seal of the Kalterersee Charter". The Charta-Kalterer is supposed to present itself "with a bright light to strong ruby red color, fruity-fresh aromas with notes of cherries and raspberries, bitter almond and violet tones as well as with harmonious mild aromas.the wine is presented with a harmonious, mild, dry and velvety structure, with soft tannins and pleasant acidity, stimulating, wholesome and inviting - a wine for light, uncomplicated enjoyment - at any time of the day and on any social occasion". On the one hand, this is a broad definition, but on the other hand, it also makes it quite clear what the Charta-Kalterersee is supposed to be and what it is not: not a concentrated blockbuster wine, but a wine that is a pleasure to drink at any time. Anytime, because it is pleasantly uncomplicated; gladly, because it has quality.
