Hajszan-Neumann Gemischter Satz Natural 2016

Weinland Österreich, AustriaThe grapes for this natural Gemischter Satz 2016 come from two old vineyards on the Wiener Nußberg: Ried Weissleiten, and Ried Ulm. The soil of both is comprised of limestone and clay, with a very high chalk component throughout. Gemischter Satz is a traditional field blend from allowable Austrian quality grapes, with a minimum of three grapes. The 2016 is a blend of grüner veltliner, welschriesling, pinot blanc, riesling, and traminer, native fermented on skins in concrete eggs with no sulphur or other additions. Post-ferment, it remains in the eggs for more than 5 months, after which it is racked off into neutral 500L barrels where it rested for 6 weeks before bottling unfined and unfiltered. Concentrated and heady, with dried apricot, dried peach, dried blossoms, quince, lychee, lime pith and orange oil, coated with a medicinal white cherry. There's an ample fine grip and a heap of tension to keep this textural, natural, biodynamic orange wine alive to the finish. So much going on in this complexed wine, and it all works.Tasted: 10 August 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
