Gemischter Satz

Gemischter Satz
Gemischter Satz is a type of wine which was widespread all over Europe until the 17th century. It is a wine made from many varieties of grapes, and in contrast to a cuvée, up to 20 different grape varieties are planted in the same vineyard and harvested and pressed together. The wines were made in this way to ensure reliability and consistent quality of the field blend. The Wiener Gemischter Satz is a speciality from Vienna in Austria and the traditional Gemischter Satz DAC must come from the vineyards Bisamberg 70% and Nussberg 30% around the city. The blend must consist of 11 varieties including Grüner Veltliner, Weißburgunder (Pinot Blanc), Welschriesling and Chardonnay with small parts from Riesling, Rotgipfler, Zierfandler, Sylvaner, Traminer and Neuburger. The character of the Gemischter Satz is difficult to describe because of the many grape varieties, but usually, it is a dry white wine which will include some unripe grapes and some overripe grapes and results in a wide range of aromas and flavours. It can develop lemony citrus notes, herbs and white flowers with ripe tropical flavours of melon and pineapple. The wine has become very popular and symbol of the Vienna wine production.
