Fritz Wieninger is considered a pioneer of the “New Vienna” wine movement, combining a sense of modernity and progress with the traditions of the region and of his family, who have been making wine for over 100 years. “I try to use the numerous facets of my grape material,” Fritz says. “To be able to show the differences in site and vintage and to get the character of the vineyard into the bottle – this is my greatest challenge.”

Nußberg means 'walnut hill'. As Fritz's top wine, he describes this as 'Vienna in a glass'. It is a blend of Weissburgunder, Neuburger, Welschriesling, Grüner Veltliner, Sylvaner, Zierfandler, Rotgipfler, Traminer and Riesling. The soils are limestone with some clay and large amounts of chalk. The Nußberg vineyard is certified Biodynamic.

30% Pinot Blanc/Pinot Bianco, 25% Neuburger, 16% Welschriesling, 10% Grüner Veltliner, 7% Sylvaner, 3% Rotgipfler, 2% Traminer.

At the winery, the grapes underwent a three-hour maceration, followed by a gentle pressing with a pneumatic press. Cool fermentation took place in temperature controlled steel tanks. The wine matured for nearly one year on fine lees before bottling.

The nose exudes fine herbal and spicy scents underscored by a honey note and hints of blossom and orange. The palate is elegant and juicy; complex with subtle spice, well-integrated and racy acidity, and a discreet touch of lemon. Very good length and an ideal partner for many dishes.
