Wiener Gemischter Satz DAC “Nußberg” 2020

Alcohol content 13% by vol., dry.

Harvested from terroir “Nußberg”; this vintage combines 12 grape varieties: Pinot Blanc, Neuburger, Grüner Veltliner, Chardonnay, Rotgipfler, Traminer, Roter Veltliner, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Müller Thurgau, Welschriesling and Gelber Muskateller. They grow side by side in the vineyard and are also picked, pressed, fermented, vinified and aged together. The combination of so many varieties of grape, which have different degrees of maturity when they are harvested, gives my wine its distinctive, fruity character reminiscent of a fruit basket with a touch of apple, wild peach and hints of lemon on the nose. In the finish a well balanced play of fruitiness and lively acidity. – Goes well with Viennese foods like “Schnitzel” and “Backhendl” (enjoy and serve at about 10°C).

Wiener Gemischter Satz DAC „Terroir Unger“ 2o19:

Alcohol content 13,5% by vol., dry.

Ried Unger’s premiere is already the stuff of legend; the wine-tasting notes are superlative: polished, crystal clear, extremely taut – this wine has contours. On the nose roasted raspberry, full on the palate with the tingling of tropical fruits, in the finish a perfectly ripened fruit basket with banana and pear of extraordinary complexity. Completely fermented, one year on fine yeast, endlessly powerful due to the grape varieties Neuburger, Grüner Veltliner, Mendoza-Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Welschriesling, and…

Ried Unger: south-southeast facing slope, maximum sun. First documented in 1402 as ” Ungar” at the Nußbach and called “Janus the Hungarian” after the name of the owner.

Ideally paired with strong aromas like cheese and brined or smoked meats. – This special wine is only sold when fully matured one year after the grape harvest (October 2o2o)!

Weißburgunder 2020

Alcohol content 13,5% by vol., dry.

Weißburgunder (Pinot Blanc) is an important ancient grape variety used in Vienna´s famous “Gemischter Satz”. The tradition of producing it separately by vinifying ripened Pinot Blanc grapes results in an elegant touch of sugar on the tongue. The nose has typical notes of a Burgundy like burnt almonds with a surprising explosion of flavour on the palate: a creamy structure combined with fruit and fresh acidity. – The ideal wine to accompany all your favourite kinds of food & meat dishes (enjoy and serve at about 10°C).

Neuburger 2020

Alcohol content: 13,5% by vol., dry.

Neuburger has been undergoing something of a revival in recent years as an ancient and regional variety that is endemic to Vienna. Typically it is used in the production of “Gemischter Satz”, but this year I have made a wine using this grape exclusively:  a classic wine with body, full on the tongue which is also very smooth in acidity. The bouquet is reminiscent of varieties of white burgundy with a touch of hazelnut. – The ideal wine to accompany all kinds of food & meat (poultry, veal, etc.). Enjoy and serve at about 10°C.
