Pale straw in colour with green hues. The bouquet is aromatic with notes of ripe pear fruit, mango, smoky grapefruit and a hint of dried fruit. The palate, reveals a full-bodied, yet elegant structure, flavours of blossom honey, white apple and a lively acidic structure. It is harmoniously balanced on the finish.

Most of Vienna’s vineyards are in the 19th and 21st of the city’s 23 districts on opposite sides of the Danube river. The Bisamberg area, located in the 21st, has sandy loess over limestone and is the source for many of Fritz’s wines including Grüner Veltliner Herrenholz and Gemischter Satz Bisamberg. Fritz’s other source is the Nußberg which lies across the Danube in the 19th district. Fritz Wieninger is the leading wine producer in the city of Vienna and is a champion of Gemischter Satz (Geh-mish-ter Sah-ts), a traditional field blend and a favourite wine in Vienna's Heurigen (wine taverns). There are over 600 hectares of vines within Vienna making it Europe’s only capital city also demarcated as a wine appellation. The Wieninger winery is in the 21st district on the outskirts of Vienna, home to many of the city’s Heurigen and home to the famed Bisamberg Hill where the Romans once cultivated the vine. Wieninger is a member of the vintner's association Österreichische Traditionsweingüter and a member of Respekt, a certifying body for biodynamic viticulture in Austria.
