Red and pithy or refreshing rosés
Trollinger wines convince with a fine-flowery bouquet, which is refined by the scent of wild cherries, currants, partly by muscatel aromas or almond tones. The Trollinger taste is fresh, pithy and down-to-earth. Due to a certain residual sweetness, the grape juice becomes a drinkable wine. A bright red, in good vintages even ruby red, sparkles from the glass. Apart from the dry red wine and the semi-dry red wine , the range of Trollinger products includes refreshing rosé wines. Blending with Lemberger is also widespread.
From Italy to Württemberg - stations of the Trollinger wine origin
Trollinger vines like warm soils, especially on Keuper or shell limestone formations. Since the grapes reach full ripeness late, they need frost-free sites. Of course, Italy is predestined for such conditions. Although the variety is called Vernatsch there, South Tyrol and the neighbouring Trentino are actually the places of the original Trollinger wine origin. Subsequently, the Romans brought the wine over the Alps to the Bergstrasse and the Palatinate. To Württemberg, the station where it became native as Trollinger, the grape variety arrived in the mid-17th century.
The best Trollinger wines for potential quarter-globes
Wines of higher predicates are rare among Trollinger. This is because even with the best quality, the sugar content of Trollinger wine does not usually exceed 180 grams per liter. Since the mash of Prädikat wines may not be additionally sugared, the highest quality level for Trollinger products is therefore passé. However, this does not mean that Trollinger is an inferior wine. It is no coincidence that it has been elevated to the status of the Swabians' national drink. The popular Viertele - a quarter of a litre of wine - is drunk in a glass with a handle, or "geschlotzt" in Swabian. This is why the Swabians have lost their reputation as "Viertelesschlotzer". Trollinger quality wines from the 2015 and 2016 vintages are suitable for potential Viertelesschlotzer. Both years produced exceptionally good drops.
Trollinger red wine: store, drink, combine.
The storage time for Trollinger red wine is comparatively short. They reach their ideal drinking maturity within one year. Stored in dry, dark and cool rooms, its quality is only preserved for up to two years. Therefore, it should be enjoyed promptly. At a drinking temperature of between 12 and 16 °C, Trollinger tastes best with typical Swabian food such as spaetzle, Maultaschen or roast onion. Cooler, at 10 to 12 °C and served with light dishes or as an aperitif, the white Trollinger wine promises maximum enjoyment.
