Hajszan-Neumann Wiener Gemischter Satz 2018Wien (Vienna), AustriaWith a name like Fritz Wieninger, you have to trust that wine is in his blood. Fritz is a pioneer of the New Vienna wine movement, co-president of RESPEKT with Fred Loimer, as well as a founding member and chairman of the Wien Wein growers association. Gemischter Satz is a traditional Austrian field blend of different white varieties cultivated and vinified together, and Fritz was one of the vintners responsible for resurrecting this dying tradition. It is is a blend of pinot blanc, grüner veltliner, neuburger, riesling and welschriesling, from Nussberg's limestone / fossil-studded soils. After a native ferment in stainless, this remained on lees for a short stint before bottling. Wet stone and earthy lees bed a light topping of melon, Asian pear, green apple, bitter lemon, and green herbs, running a slight, snappy palate. The finish rinses with mineral salts, encouraging another chilled glass, hopefully with dressed shellfish.Tasted: 04 November 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 26.95 consignment BC 35.00 private wine shops Producer: Weingut Hajszan-NeumannDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
