Weingut Christ White Blend Wiener Gemischter Satz 2008

Member Review by Philip James:

Almonds on the nose, this is a very crisp, mineral white. There's a flinty edge to it - high acids. Very nice.

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 ‘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”.
