The Bisamberg (translated as “up to the hill”) is the 21st district’s primary vineyard and was the main vineyard area for Wieninger Heuriger. The Bisamberg climbs up to a height of 1,150ft and consists of light, sandy loess over limestone. The Gemischter Satz Bisamberg Alte Reben (old vine) is a 35-year-old vineyard that Fritz took over in 2011.

This wine is a blend of white grapes taken from the Bisamberg vineyard. The vineyard is planted with 40% Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc), 40% Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris) and 20% Chardonnay.  The varieties were harvested together and pressed gently, then fermented with spontaneous yeasts in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. After being stored, the wine was then bottled.

Tasting Notes

The nose is aromatic with scents of light, smoky grapefruit, ripe stone fruit and a soft yeast nuance. The palate reveals a full-bodied, yet elegant wine with a fine acidity structure. It is harmoniously balanced and already very approachable. 

Food Pairing

This is a multi-dimensional food partner that pairs especially well with fish and seafood dishes and light Mediterranean meals.
