Nußberg (meaning “walnut hill”) is located in the 19th district and soars to nearly 1,000ft above downtown Vienna. Wines from the Nußberg tend to show greater richness than those of Bisamberg. One of Wieninger’s top wines is the Gemischter Satz Nußberg Alte Reben, a 50-year-old plot of nine varieties based mainly on Pinot Blanc, Neuberger, and Welschriesling. It is, as Fritz likes to say: “Vienna in a glass.”

The grapes were picked by hand and processed together following the careful elimination of any botrytised grapes. A 3-hour maceration period was followed by gentle pressing with a pneumatic winepress. Fermentation took place in cooled steel tanks. After maturing for nearly one year on the fine lees, the wine was bottled.

Tasting Notes

The wine presents itself with a very complex aroma of citrus fruits, yellow flowers, pineapple and sweet herbs with complex, spicy and mineral fruit. On the palate, lively with good acidity, plenty of power, presence and good length. 

Food Pairing

Pair with Waldorf salad, porcini tarte tatin, or roast pork loin with apples.
