Gemischter Satz, “mixed set” is a traditional field blend of up to 13 varietals that are co-planted and co-fermented, once a common practice in many regions of Europe. The wine has survived thanks to the Viennese love of heurigen culture and its fame has spread in no small part to Fritz Wieninger’s dedication to produce Gemischter Satz at the highest level of quality. This example is a field blend based on Grüner Veltliner, Weissburgunder, Welschriesling, and Chardonnay, with a smaller presence of five other grapes.
Weingut Wieninger cultivates grapes on the Bisamberg and on the Nussberg, which - separated by the Danube River - feature different soils and climates. The winery's comprehensive range of wines reflects these differences.
Cellar work combines traditional with modern methods and focuses on allowing the vineyards to shine through. The cellar is completely modern with space for each vineyard to be vinified separately, allowing expression of individual terroirs.
Light green-yellow. Fresh and intense nose with fresh fruitiness combined with mineral components. Hints of spice and floral aromas derive from the small contributions of many other traditional grape varieties in the blend -- "All of Vienna in One Wine."
Pairs perfectly with light summer dishes, fresh seafood, and traditional Viennese dishes. Beyond these easy pairings, however, the nature of the mixed planting produces a multifaceted wine that can pair well with many flavors.Supplier notes
