Gruner Veltliner

Grüner Veltliner is a variety of white wine grapes that is grown mainly in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Austria. Gruner Veltliner is considered to pair nicely with food and is best when it is young. The grape variety is created in several different styles, but it also ages well. When grown on steep vineyards, the variety produces wine with a mineral-like taste because it is grown on land that barely gives the vines enough soil. When it is grown in the plains, Grüner Veltliner creates spicy tones of tobacco or pepper. This wine is said to have originated during the Roman Empire, although the name appeared for the first time in the 1800s. Prior to the name, Grüner Veltliner was known as Weißgipfler. In the 1930s, the grape adopted its official name. Some researchers believe that the variety is not related to other grape varieties with the name “vetliner” in the title. They also believe that the variety is also unrelated to Muscat, even though the previous name "Grüner Muskateller" may indicate it. Gruner Veltliner pairs well with foods that may be considered difficult to pair with, such as bitter greens, artichokes or asparagus. This wine also pairs nicely with shellfish or white fish.

Hugl Gemischter Satz 2019

Hugl Gemischter Satz is made from 50% Grüner Veltliner, 40% Gelber Muskateller and 10% Riesling.

Gemischter Satz" has a long history in Austria. It is a field blend where different grape varieties are picked at the same time and vinified together:

In Vienna, the tradition of planting different and complementary grape varieties together in a vineyard – then harvesting and fermenting them together as well – has survived to the present day as Gemischter Satz. Thanks to the dynamic efforts of ambitious winegrowers, this traditional rarity has grown in stature and recognition to become the calling card of viticulture in Austria’s capital city.

Gemischter Satz is very popular in Vienna’s Heurigen (the Viennese term for wine taverns). Historically, Heurigen were simple places, where vineyard owners would open their doors during wine season to serve glasses of this years wine and juices to guests. At most, a plate of cold meats and cheese could be served along with the delicious wine.

For the traditional wines of Wiener Gemischter Satz - the planting of different grape varieties together in one vineyard - a unique style profile has been developed; a style that reflects the wine's origin-typical aromas and flavours. The regulation for the Wiener Gemischter Satz DAC requires that at least three white quality wine varieties must be planted together in one vineyard that is listed in the Viennese vineyard register as Wiener Gemischter Satz. The highest portion of one grape variety must be no more than 50%; the third highest portion must be at least 10%. Wines without vineyard indication must be dry and without any prominent wood flavour. The Wiener Gemischter Satz DAC can be marketed with an indication of vineyard site also. Single vineyard wines do not necessarily have to correspond with the “dry” taste indication, and they cannot be released for sale prior to March 1st of the year following the harvest. Minimum alcohol % of 12.5%.

Adds an enthusiastic Herbert Schilling, head of Vienna's Regional Wine Committee: “With the Wiener Gemischter Satz DAC, we've achieved a milestone in the consistent, years-long quality policy for wine growing in Vienna. The new regulations sharpen the origin profile of Wiener Gemischter Satz and, at the same time, reflect Vienna´s diversity in the glass.”

The wine displays a mix of green-spicy flavors mixed with muscat, white pepper on the palate.

"A rather shy nose reveals nothing but slight notes of citrus. The palate then fills out with subtle but convincing notes of fresh sage, lemon pith, celery salt and yeast. Lemon highlights keep this on the ultrafresh side, but the savory yeastiness provides a lovely balance. - ANNE KREBIEHL MW"
