The field blend method of Gemischter Satz was common among peasant vineyards for practical reasons, but inadvertently it has led to a style of wine that best expresses Viennese terroir.

Rich opaque purple color with aromas of gently crushed berries, wet earth, warm spices like cinnamon, clove, and cardamom. On the palate this wine is surprisingly light with the fresh berry notes dominating. As it opens up, flavors of raisin and currant become more apparent as well as the secondary aromas of spices and earth. Moderate tannins and a smooth finish complete the experience. Pair with roasted or grilled meat dishes and heavy sauces. Shop >
