Grape: 80% Zweigelt, 20% St Laurent
Viticulture: Biodynamic Farming / Natural Wine
Vinification: Natural fermentation on skins for 8 days. The wine is then matured on fine lees for 18 months in a mix of stainless steel tanks and acacia barrels. Unfined and unfiltered with only 5mg of sulphur added.
Rich and powerful red packed with dark cherries. Spice and earthy notes give the wine complexity and a long finish.
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.
Low intervention winemaking is the top priority when it comes to the cellar. Fermentation always starts naturally, no temperature control is used. All of the wines are matured without sulphur and bottled without fining or filtration – as it was intended by nature.
