Stift Klosterneuburg Gemischter Satz 2018

18.99

Description

Gemischter Satz a ‘field blend’ wine, made from several different co-fermented grape varieties. Historically, it was associated with ‘heurige’ wine taverns, where it was and still is drunk as a jug wine, often as a spritzer. The image and quality of the wine is changing now however, and this is an example of a top quality well crafted blend.

Unifying the typical Viennese grape varieties Grüner Veltliner, Welschriesling, Riesling, Weissburgunder (Pinot blanc), Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer and Muscat, the wine is youthful and fresh with a multi-layered bouquet of green apple, white floral nuances and notes of stone-fruit. A creamy green herb character with ripe sweet lemon oil pairs with lively acidity to make this definitely worth savouring, rather than just tipping back with fizz!

Producer: Stift Klosterneuburg

When you're out finding your first Austrian winery, you might as well make it a good one. Stift Klosterneuburg, on the grounds of Klosterneuburg Cathedral just outside Vienna, is the oldest wine estate in Austria and one of the oldest in the world, with a history dating back as far as the Augustine monks who've resided there since St. Leopold established a monastery and church in 1114. Klosterneuburg redefines sustainability — there are vineyards here that have been in continuous production for 900 years (albeit with occasional replantings!).

Still owned by the Augustine Order, the winery is Europe's first certified carbon neutral wine producer, an ongoing process that incorporates everything from the carbon neutral power plant that powers the entire monastery campus, to how employees get to and from work.

Vineyards are split between the immediate locales of Klosterneuburg and Vienna for the white wines, with vineyards for the reds located further south in the Thermenregion, one of the most renowned regions for Austrian red wines. Grüner Veltiner, Riesling and Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc) dominate the whites, with St. Laurent, Zweigelt and Pinot Noir the most celebrated of the reds.
