Pale lemon in colour, this dry Riesling displays intense aromas of fresh citrus and stone fruit. The palate is vibrant and textured, balanced by juicy acidity.
This wine is a blend of Riesling grown in the vineyards of Bisamberg and Nussberg. 65% of the grapes are sourced from Bisamberg, where the soil is comprised of light, sandy loess over limestone, and the remaining 35% is grown on the limestone chalky soils of Nussberg. The Bisamberg fruit delivers apricot-toned characters, while the Nussberg expresses mineral and peach flavours. Blending the fruit from these contrasting sites adds depth and complexity to the final wine.
Fritz Wieninger is considered a pioneer of the ‘New Vienna’ wine movement, combining a sense of modernity and progress with the traditions of the region and of his family, who have been making wine for over 100 years.
