Gemischter Satz simply means, in Viennese dialect, a mixed vineyard, and this wine comes from a parcel of land that has eight different varieties and 50-year-old vines. The blend certainly gives complexity as well as richness, with currants and white fruits living together with crispness and a vivid aftertaste.
