schönin *1683 (Gemischter Satz)vintage 2o19
Alcohol content 14,5% by vol., dry.
A Viennese Gemischter Satz (“Cuvée”) of the modern ART made from 80% SChönin Blanc, 10% Mendoza-Chardonnay, 5% Grüner Veltliner, 5% Neuburger.
The vintage from my youngest and most beautiful vineyard! These grapes were grown on shell-limestone soil which is millions years old, were harvested on Oct 17 and 40% of which were aged for 4 months in best “Bertranges” Burgundy oak. – Fantastic texture, very concentrated combined with a new adventure of flavours: Exotic fruits and a noble toasted bouquet in the nose; tropical flavours such as lemongrass, kiwi, ripened banana and starfruit on the palate.
This wine is delicious on its own, but pairs well with a variety of fine food. I enjoy it with Mediterranean and Creole cuisine along with Viennese “Tafelspitz” and cheese (enjoy and serve at 12O C).
* Family Mayer has been situated in Vienna since 1683. – The outstanding wine-creation „schönin“ is the latest addition to my wine-range!
