Burgundian in style, this wine has an expressive nose, with aromas of red cherry and delicate spice. On the palate, supple tannins and crunchy acidity are coupled with notes of ripe plum and wet stone. This Pinot Noir has great finesse and potential for ageing.
Weingut Wieninger is comprised of 50 hectares of biodynamically-grown vines on two main sites: Bisamberg (35 ha) and the smaller Nussberg (15 ha), separated by the Danube river. Drier and sunnier Bisamberg is characterised by light, sandy loess soil which makes for fresh wines with vibrant acidity. In contrast, Nussberg has shell and limestone soils with a high clay content, giving wines with greater richness and deeper fruit aromas.
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.
