Wine Advocate 88 points - From the Bisamberg and the Nussberg, Fritz Wieninger’s stainless steel-fermented 2014 Wiener Gemischter Satz opens clear, fresh and very pure on the nose, also revealing some cool/smoky stone flavors. Medium-bodied and pure on the palate, this elegant and well-balanced wine shows lovely, stimulating and intense fruit and a good, slightly salty length. This is a very well-made wine full of character and not just because of its price. A must-have for all those who love and drink Austrian wines.  (Apr 2015)

Wine maker notes
Gemischter Satz, “mixed set” is a traditional field blend of up to 13 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. A field blend based on Gruner Veltliner, Weissburgunder, Welschriesling, and Chardonnay.

Food pairing
Pairs perfectly with light summer dishes, and fresh seafood.

Though Vienna is known for patisseries, opera, music and glistening pedestrian shopping plazas, the city also maintains a viticultural focus. The Wieninger winery was founded as part of that traditional Viennese heurigen (winebar) system established in the 18th century. Born in 1966 to this wine growing family, Fritz Wieninger represents the fourth generation in the current house. Before his birth it was his mother that was the family winemaker, as she was one of the first female graduates of the Oenology program at Klosterneuberg (Europe”s oldest wine making school). Emerging from his own training in the wake of the Austrian Wine Scandal of 1985, Fritz spent a year working vineyards in California. It was during this time that he was convinced that the future for Austria lay in making wines of great quality and distinction, and it was also his inspiration for making top quality wines at his own home from the classic Burgundian varieties Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Once returned from his travels, Fritz took firm control of the family winery and the arc of success was swift and steep over the next few years - his first exports in 1989, Falstaff”s ”Winzer der Jahr” (Winemaker of the Year) in 1990, and first exports to the USA in 1995.
