Wine Maker Notes
Rosengartl is located within the Nußberg and historically the most prestigious vineyard in the Vienna region. The wines were amongst the most sought-after in the days of the Habsburg Empire and today are in high demand because of their complex characteristics and distinctive expression of terroir. A classic yet powerful Wiener Gemischter from vines planted in 1960.The Wiener Gemischte Satz consists of 5 grape varieties: Gruner Veltliner (nearly 50 %), Weißburgunder, Neuburger, Traminer and Riesling, all of which had been picked by hand and, following a meticulous selection that removed any botrytis grapes, were processed together. The 4-hour maceration was followed by a gentle pressing with a pneumatic wine press. Fermentation took place in cool steel tanks. After a few months of maturing on the fine lees, the wine was bottled.
Pair with asparagus quiche, Tuscan white bean soup, or Wiener schnitzel.
