Weingut Christ Gelber Muskateller 2008

Member Review by Philip James:

Intense peach and lychee and mangos on the nose. This wine displays lots of acidity - even to a prickle. Nice and oily, with a touch of spice, however, generally its a clean, crisp wine with a nutty finish.

Rainer Christ first came to the attention of the Vienna wine scene with his ‘Full Moon’ Pinot Blanc. Harvested and vinified according to the phases of the moon, Rainer successfully placed himself ahead of the curve within the growing biodynamic movement in Vienna. Raised in a 400 year old family tradition with some very old vines on the Bisamberg, just north east of the city, Rainer cultivates the soils with his father, Franz. Five distinct microclimates allow them to fine tune varietals to perfection. Although Gruener Veltliner is dominant, comprising 37% of the total yield, Rainer is also dedicating more and more attention to the white Burgundy varietals and red wines. As a founding member of ‘Wien Wein’ (Vienna Wine) Christ is helping to establish definitions and guidelines for reintroducing the increasingly popular ‘Gemischte Satz’(literally:‘mixed set’- a wine made from a number of different varietals planted in the same vineyard, harvested and vinified at the same time). As ‘terroir’ becomes the international wine buzz word, one doesn’t get more terroir driven than this. Despite the ultra modern appearance of the family winery and heuriger rebuilt in 2006, the wines remain gravity fed, unfiltered and biodynamic. “Wine requires enthusiasm and passion,” says Rainer Christ. “For making wine, there must be the deep desire to create something extraordinary”.
