My innovative wines.


SÉMIO (Sémillon) Creation 17 (2o17)

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).

PLATINUM (Pinot Gris) 2o17

Alcohol content 14% by vol., semi-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 Oct 1 and cold-maceration with skins for 12 hours. – The 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).
