Lenikus Wiener Gemischter Satz 2012

$17.95

Product Description

"Multiple layers of aromas coming together in a unified wholeness. Classic Austrian style. Apple and herbal spice, with earthy notes. Muscat tones." - Winery

A "mixed set" ("gemischter satz") of traditional Austrian co-planted and co-fermented varietals (Gruner Veltliner, Riesling, Pinot blanc, Chardonnay and others).

Wine growing in Vienna means setting off on an adventure. On a major, a challenging and, not least, an expensive adventure. One where the task is to uphold an ancient tradition that is considered unique in the world: wine growing within the city limits of a vibrant metropolis. The fact that these Viennese soils on which, in which and with which the Lenikus winemakers work are also an exceptional rarity in themselves (alongside the natural topography of the areas they cover) is something that cannot be underestimated. For there is hardly any other region that brings together, in such a small area, the diversity offered to us here: loess, shale, shell limestone, primitive rock, flysch and sandstone - to name just a few. It's an outstanding repertoire with which to produce wines that can fully match the quality of the major European names - and do so with an incomparable Viennese note. 

Speaking of that Viennese note, it was with the intention of adding a visual expression reflecting the varied characters of the Austrian soils and wines that Lenikus labels feature genuinely Viennese characters - residents of Vienna who walked through, swam through or flew over what are now the vineyards a long time ago - in some cases a few million years ago. It's a sign of Lenikus' respect for the history of the land.

Gemischter Satz is a traditional field blend of up to 13 Austrian varietals that are co-planted and co-fermented, once a common practice in many regions of Europe. The wine has survived thanks to the Viennese love of heurigen culture and its fame has spread in no small part to Fritz Wieninger's dedication to produce Gemischter Satz at the highest level of quality.
