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).

*PLATINUM(Grauburgunder)2o2o

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 4 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. – The perfect wine to accompany red meat (lamb, venison, heavy roast dishes, patés, foie gras and cheeses… (enjoy and serve at about 13C).
