Wine Enthusiast 89 points - This wine comes from the Nussberg vineyards close to the Vienna woods. It is aromatic, spicy and richly textured. The wine has warmth as well as crisp acidity and green-fruit flavors. Give it a year to mature. Screwcap. (Sep 2013)

Wine maker notes
The grapes for the Riesling Vienna Hills are from Vienna’s Bisamberg and Nussberg vineyards. After very meticulous hand selection the grapes from the various vineyard areas underwent a brief maceration and were then carefully pressed. The must underwent cool fermentation and maturation with spontaneous yeasts in steel tanks in order to retain the fragrant character and terroir notes. After maturing on the fine lees for a moderate period, the individual portions were blended and then bottled.

Food pairing
An ideal companion for spicy Asian cuisine.

Producer
Though Vienna is known for patisseries, opera, music and glistening pedestrian shopping plazas, the city also maintains a viticultural focus. The Wieninger winery was founded as part of that traditional Viennese heurigen (winebar) system established in the 18th century. Born in 1966 to this wine growing family, Fritz Wieninger represents the fourth generation in the current house. Before his birth it was his mother that was the family winemaker, as she was one of the first female graduates of the Oenology program at Klosterneuberg (Europe’s oldest wine making school). Emerging from his own training in the wake of the Austrian Wine Scandal of 1985, Fritz spent a year working vineyards in California. It was during this time that he was convinced that the future for Austria lay in making wines of great quality and distinction, and it was also his inspiration for making top quality wines at his own home from the classic Burgundian varieties Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Once returned from his travels, Fritz took firm control of the family winery and the arc of success was swift and steep over the next few years – his first exports in 1989, Falstaff’s “Winzer der Jahr” (Winemaker of the Year) in 1990, and first exports to the USA in 1995.
