Wien (Vienna)

 

Numerous individually-named parcels in the top vineyard Nussberg form a colourful landscape – as well as demanding arduous manual labour on the part of the winegrower. Substantial temperature swings between day & night are characteristic of this noteworthy terroir, supporting the important development of aromaticity in the wines.

Flysch-marl soils with a great deal of fossil limestone formed here three million years ago, and there are more than one hundred different small parcels with extremely varied soil compositions. Warm winds flow from the Pannonian plain, while cooling draughts come from the Vienna Woods and the Danube River, and all of these singular factors coalesce to create great wines. In the south of Vienna – Rodaun, Mauer & Oberlaa – one finds rendzinas, brown- & black-earth soils, good for authoritative white wines and opulent red cuvées.
