Tasting Notes

Aromas are of nectarine, apple, flowers, honey , pear and peach fuzz. The palate is medium plus in weight with succulent orchard fruits (apple, peach, pear) and some tropical notes (passionfruit underripe mango). Citrusy acidity keeps it juicy and the texture is a nice balance between crisp and fleshy. This is bright, clean and a great, all-purpose wine!

This wine will pair well with creamy cabbage and gruyere soup, potato gratin, salads, pasta carbonara, seafood and chicken.

WINE INFORMATION

Gemischter Satz is a wine from different grape varieties that are grown together in one single vineyard around the city of Vienna. The grapes grow together, are harvested together, and eventually are all processed together. This is the most traditional way of planting in Austria. There are 12 different grape varietals allowed in a Gemischter Satz. This wine is fermented with native yeast, and rests on lees.

For centuries, the Groiss family has grown grapes in Austria’s largest wine-growing region, Niederösterreich located in lower Austria  and more specifically in the northern subregion of Weinviertel. Winemaker Ingrid Groiss operates as a small family business with her father helping with tractor work, and her mother assisting in the vineyards. The vineyard was inherited by her grandmother and most vines are almost 60 years old. The family oversees 50 acres) of organic vineyards, focusing on a range of different white wines, including four single vineyard wines grown on 50-year-old vines.

Ingrid Groiss studied winemaking at Universität für Bodenkultur and returned home to eventually inherit vineyards from both her mother’s and father’s sides of the family. Upon taking over the family vineyards, Ingrid converted them to organics and narrowed their range to produce only wines that reflected their terroir, grape variety, and vintage. The vineyard is commonly referred to as ‘loess land’, marked by loess soil.  The vines are rooted in loess soil which covers older layers of rock and is adept at storing water and nutrients.  White quartz and sandstone are also important soil types in vineyards. Due to the age of the vines, the yield is very small.
