Kaleidos is a Gemischter Satz wine. For a long time, these wines were the 'Jug Wines' of Austria usually found around Vienna in the wine taverns or 'heurige', as they are known and were often drunk as a spritzer. Gemischter Satz can be made from several permitted grape varieties but they must be grown in the same 'field' (vineyard), must be harvested and vinified together. Some of the permitted varieties are listed at the end of this section.
In 2006 work started by some vineyards to improve the quality of Gemischter Satz and in 2013, the quality of Gemischter Satz was recognised when it became the 9th DAC in Austria which was the first time a wine style had been recognised, rather than a wine region. There are now strict regulations that control how Gemischter Satz is made and lovely wines in this style are now being produced.
Kaleidos is one such wine from Poysdorf, to the north of Vienna. This is a perfectly refreshing dry white wine bringing flavours of ripe stone fruits and the freshness of green apples. Grüner Veltliner is a major constituent part of this wine and this brings the typical peppery hints and spice. Kaleidos is a true Secret Wine; easy to drink and a pleasure to share and enjoy. Have it as an aperitif or to accompany white fish, chicken and salads. Perfect for any occasion.
Kaleidos is part of the 'Summer Sipping' case of wines but can be purchased separately if you wish to make up your own selection of mixed wines - or just Kaleidos. Whichever, we are sure you will love this wine.
