My innovative wines.


SÉMIO (Sémillon) Creation 17 (2o17) – last bottle finished

Alcohol content 14% by vol., dry.
Picked from the “Unger” terroir on Oct 5.
The invented term “Sémio” is derived from the ancient French variety Sémillon, which I was one of the first to plant in Austria. Sémillon is normally utilised in the production of powerful and famous Sauternes sweet wines. I have made it completely differently – “the Austrian way”: Young and lively, in keeping with the new and modern style of oenology with a good structure, very well balanced body and a fresh concentration of flavours whose nose reminds one of exotic limes, gooseberry, grapefruit and hints of wild herbs; in the finish a fresh touch of acidity.

Food pairing: An ideal accompaniment to starters, asparagus, vegetable variations, fish and seafood (serve at 10°C).

 2019 Retro_FMM

„Retro“ Creation 18:

Alcohol content 14% by vol., dry.

(Anniversary-PinoSE) under the motto: How it all began …:

I founded my winery “FM Mayer.Vitikultur” in 1999. – In 2019 it is time to celebrate its 20th anniversary!

In 1999 I planted my first vineyard in the “Unger” terroir with the grape varieties Sémillon (2/3) & Pinot Gris (1/3).

In the 3rd year after planting my 1st own (maiden) harvest yielded 100 litres. This first vintage was a mixed harvest of 3 parts Sémillon & 1 part Pinot Gris; this is because Sémillon has a much bigger, natural grape dimension.

For the anniversary year 2o19 I harvested “Retro” style: a partial harvest (300 litres) from the Unger terroir on 26 September, once again a Gemischter Satz using the same ratio of grapes (3:1), the same degree of ripeness (21.5° KMW) and likely the same alcohol, acidity and residual sugar content! My “First PinoSE Creation 01″ was, even then, a sensation.

The difference between the wines lies simply in the vintage and the additional years of knowledge and experience I have gained in the meantime!

Back then the bottles only had a handwritten logo, a simple description on a label on the back of the bottle (in German) and my contact details (landline no.)

The description of the wine at the time: a delicate golden yellow colour, subtle fruity bouquet, somewhat racy, elegant and very powerful on the palate

you can be very excited about it!

Unfortunately not available anymore.


PLATINUM (Pinot Gris) 2o18

Qualitätswein, alcohol content 14% by vol., dry.

Is so named due to the colour of fully ripened Pinot Gris berries, which have nearly the same shimmer of noble grey as the precious metal platinum. Aged in 300 l acacia after harvesting on Sept 10 and cold-maceration with skins for 15 hours. – The spicy bouquet has notes of honeydew melon and burnt almond; on the tongue a touch of chestnut and a complex creamy structure; ending with a long, powerful, mineral sweetness in the finish.

Food pairing: The perfect wine to accompany red meat (lamb, venison, heavy roast dishes, patés and foie gras (enjoy and serve at about 13° C).
