Grape: Welschriesling, Rosenmuskateller, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, St. Laurent, Blaufrankisch
Viticulture: Biodynamic Farming / Natural Wine
The grapes got partially de-stemmed (approx. 10% stems in the mash) and fermented naturally in stainless steel and fibreglass vats. After 10 days the mash was pressed and the wine was transfered into barrels (225l Barriques) in the cellar. The white grapes were direct pressed. The wines matured on gross lees for 11 months without any additives, without fining and filtration. Bottled on August 8th 2022 unfiltered, unfined without the addition of sulfur.
Blend of red and white grapes; as you would expect this wine has everything that you need for a sunny afternoon. A dance-off between raspberry and lime; rhubarb and grapefruit - vibrant, exciting & fun.
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.
