Grape: 40% Grüner Veltliner, 40% Weissburgunder, 20% Sauvignon Blanc
Viticulture: Biodynamic Farming / Natural Wine
Vinification: During harvest, all grapes are processed in the backyard. whole bunches go straight into the screw press without additives or temperature control. The juice then goes straight into stainless steel, large acacia barrels, oak barrels (2000L) and fibreglass tanks where it ferments naturally. All 3 components of HOMOK (Grüner + Weissburgunder + Sauvignon Blanc) were matured together on the lees for 6-7 months. Bottled unfined, unfiltered with the addition of 5mg sulphur.
Summer in a bottle! Limes and mango with depth and complexity.
Nested on the shallow slops of Burgenland next to the beautiful Neusiedl lake are the vineyards of Maria and Alex Koppitsch. Since 2011 they are preserving the natural wine making traditions that have been in their family for over 500 years now.
Taking on the holistic approach – they make sure, that all the work at the vineyard is done with respect and immense amount of care. At the core of their ethics are biodynamic principles and persistent manual labour.
The soil on which the grapes are grown are sand, clay, loam and gravel – and as such, it reflects in how diverse the wines are.
