Tasting Notes

A field blend of indigenous varieties including Grüner Veltliner, Weissburgunder, Welschriesling, Chardonnay. Roter Veltliner, Rotgipfler, Zierfandler, Muskateller, Traminer and Neuburger. Sourced from the bio-certified Bisamberg and Nussberg vineyard sites, where Bisamberg consists of light, sandy loess over massive chunks of limestone; the Nussberg is comprised of limestone along with weathered shell limestone, and a generous clay content. The grapes are comprised of at least three different varieties that have been harvested together. After meticulous grape selection via hand-picking, and then another selection through a fully automated grape sorting system, the individual batches of grapes underwent 3 hours of maceration before being carefully pressed. The pre-clarified must underwent cool fermentation and maturation in steel tanks in order to accentuate the racy, fruity character as much as possible. Following a moderate amount of time on the lees, the individual batches were blended together and bottled.

Soil: The grapes come from the Bisamberg and Nussberg vineyard sites. The Bisamberg consists of light, sandy loess over massive chunks of limestone; the Nussberg is comprised of limestone along with weathered shell limestone and a generous clay content.

Vineyard and cellar: All of the grapes - grown in bio-certified vineyards – are comprised of at least three different varieties that have been harvested together. After meticulous grape selection via hand-picking, and then another selection through a fully automated grape sorting system, the individual batches of grapes for the Wiener Gemischter Satz DAC underwent three hours of maceration before being carefully pressed. The pre-clarified must underwent cool fermentation and maturation in steel tanks in order to accentuate the racy, fruity character as much as possible. Following a moderate amount of time on the lees, the individual batches were blended together and bottled. For the first time, the Wiener Gemischte Satz has been ennobled with “DAC”, the strictly controlled designation of origin for Viennese wine.


Critical Praise

"Fritz Wieninger makes some of the top wines in Vienna, and even this, his basic Gemischter Satz (he also makes a couple of other exceptional old vine/parcel cuvées) is outstanding. 2015 favoured ripeness, power and length, which are all offered here in spades. I like the fleshy, extracted yellow fruit and sweet herbals flavours, the light florality, the unctuousness as well as the cut and precision. There's palpable texture on the palate - dusty and firm, light tannins - which could use another few months to settle in. Great length. Tasted April 2016." - 91 points, John Szabo, MS, WineAlign.com
