Light botrytis character on the nose, quite a bit of Riesling in the blend? Lovely ripe fruit, quite spicy and lifted. Attractive texture, not too fat but plenty of depth and a hint of sweetness on the finish.
From a vineyard in the Bisamberg cru, within Vienna’s city limits. Blowsy, creamy fruit, quite big and rounded, but balanced and mineral with it. Some baked fruits on the nose. Fine, elegant finish. Has seen some oak but it’s subtly done and adds texture.
Lacks a bit of freshness on the nose, more herbal or even tea-like. But the palate has lemon zest, sharon fruit and also some herbal tinges. Bone dry and very salty on the finish. This is a very typical Wieninger style – tight and verging on the austere, but with terrific character.
Evident oak on the nose, together with lemon peel and some white blossoms. Fruit feels very masked, some pineapple notes. Probably way too young, but doesn’t feel like it has the acidity to age well either.
Expressive, ripe, rich citrus fruit with lovely acids, rounded texture, almost sweet on the finish, but a nice slatey, limey minerality that reins it in. A real charmer, great fruit purity and depth too.
Beautiful fruit, exotic guava notes, quite broad and expressive, with citrus freshness (ever so slight botrytis influence?). Very ripe, but juicy and full in the mouth with balance too. Really enjoyable and already drinking very well.
