Pair with asparagus quiche, Tuscan white bean soup, or Wiener schnitzel.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. The nose exudes fine herbal-spicy scents underscored by a honey note and whiffs of linden blossom and orange. The palate is elegant and juicy - very complex with fine spiciness, well-integrated and racy acidity, and a discreet touch of lemon. Very good length.
