Wien Wine

Wien, otherwise know as Vienna, is living proof wine can come from what is considered to be "a big city." Vienna is both the capitol of Vienna and a very important winemaking region within Austria. Vienna is best known for the Grúner Veltliner, Riesling, Weiβburgunder (Pinot Blanc), Chardonnay and their signature white field blend, Gemischter Satz along with several quality reds. In the north, Chardonnay, Riesling and Weiβburgunder are the most popular because of the limestone soils. In the south, the black earthy soils favor red cuvee's and strong whites. Despite the fact that Vienna is a large city and is not typically where one might expect grapes to thrive, but Vienna has some of the best wines in Austria. The vineyards are mainly located on the outskirts of Austria, north of the Danube. To make Gemischter Satz, Viennese wine-growers combine grapes that are grown and harvested together, which account for the way the grapes complement each others profiles.

  • Weingut Christ-Wiener Gemischter Satz. Weingut Christ Osterreich Wien Cuvée Weiss Weingut Christ Grosse 2011


    Pristine-clean, mineral-laden and delicately citrusy, this wine is light and airy on the palate thanks, in part, to its nervy acidity. Tightly focused, this bottling shows pink grapefruit, kiwi and orange peel. Medium minus on the finish. Read More

  • Qualitätswein Trocken Wien Schloss Schönbrunn Rotleiten 2007


    Just a hint of fudge right out of the gate with smoky, earthy undertone, and some nice woodsy, oak spice top notes to the mix of boysenberry and blueberry on the nose. A bit austere up front with curiously soft, lush tannins. The acid lends a certain nervous character to the wine. The mid-palate shows nice wild blueberry and cherry notes with a ... Read More

  • Weingut Christ Red Blend Mephisto 2006


    Dark and a bit hard on the nose with a woody, spearminty overlay to the lightly floral core of red fruit, with shavings of dark chocolate adding some complexity. Light and fresh up front with dark berry fruit flavors that are a bit anonymous. Theres a distinct mintiness in the mouth as well and, while the wine is fairly well-balanced, there are ... Read More

  • Weingut Hajszan Red Blend Zweigelt/Blaufrankisch 2007


    Winemaker's notes: Aromas of sour cherry and black berry mingle effectivelywith a hint of tobacco. Even fairly new in thebottle this wine will pamper your taste buds with anelegant body, well balanced acidity and beautifullyembodied tannnins. It is lovely now but will developwith cellaring.

  • Weingut Hajszan White Blend Gemischter Satz Weissleiten 2007


    It's probably one of the most interesting wines I have ever encountered. A nuanced, biodynamic Viennese field blend of eleven varieties. Delicate complexity that slowly unfolds: white pepper, quince, dried apricot, herbs, stones, preserved lemon, soft vanilla and some strawberry juice. Also, if in Vienna, do visit the winery's restaurant. Read More
