SÉMIO Creation 20 (2o2o):

Alcohol content 13,5% by vol., dry.

Picked from the “Unger” terroir on Oct 10.

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

DOUBLE  Cuvée 2o19 

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

DOUBLE is a cuvée made 50:50% from the two most important varieties of French “Sauternes” vinified, unusually, not into dessert wine, but instead made in the traditional Austrian way; into a dry, fruity, fresh and lively white wine. The blend has notes of elder blossom and gooseberry from the Sauvignon blanc grapes; the finish comes from the “Sémio” with its typically creamy mature characteristics of caramel and honey. – The perfect accompaniment to Asian Food (sweet & sour, hot) and vegetarian or au gratin dishes (enjoy and serve at 10–12C).
