Wine from Poysdorf

Poysdorf is a wine region located in Austria that is steeped in wine making tradition, and has been the wealth of Poysdorf for centuries. Hermann’s Schachen is the oldest vineyard in Austria, and dates back to 1338. The region gained fame when deliveries were made to the Russian Tsar in St. Petersburg 300 years ago by a horse driven wagon. The loess soil and premium location of the region allows wine makers to produce over 10 million liters of red and white wine annually. Today Poysdorf wine makers rank among the best in the world. Austria enjoys a moderate climate making it perfect for grape growing. In 2005, there were 51,213 hectares of vineyards in Austria. With the four main regions being split into 16 districts. Poysdorf produces over 200 different wines that include Rieslings, Sylvaners, Veltliners, and Zweigelts. There are 29 wine makers in Poysdorf. Austrian wines are mostly dry white and are often produced from the Gruner Veltliner grape. Nearly 30% of the wines in Austria are red and produced from Pinot Noir, Blaufränkisch, and locally grown varieties like Zweigelt. Austria is also the home to Riedel, the producers of some of the most elegant and expensive wine glasses in the world.

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"
