Hajszan-Neumann Gemischter Satz NATURAL 2020

Wien (Vienna), AustriaThe grapes for this natural Gemischter Satz 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. This 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. Lightly hazy, with pear skin, apricot, fragrant lime blossoms, anise, and subtle soap, finishing with a saline wash. There's a buzzy amphora grip here, adding interest and complexities.Tasted: 11 November 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
