Wiener Gemischter Satz Nussberg Alte Reben 2008
After yesterday's disappointing Burgundy, tonight was a white guaranteed to have no oak influence. Wieninger Wiener Gemischter Satz Nussberg Alte Reben 2008, a field blend of practically everything grown around Vienna made from c.40yo vines. Gold. Lovely aromas, very mineral, this time showing rather floral with the Muscat and/or Gewurz elements to the fore (whereas in November when this was open at a tasting where it seemed more like Riesling). But despite this mix of such different grapes, this wine, perhaps amazingly, is very pure and anti-messy. Good, refreshing acidity, more rich than I remembered from the tasting, but it is still racy and moreish. Most enjoyable after the oaky Burgundy was that I was now drinking grapes not forests. Lovely.
