Vinification: Grapes are hand-harvested // One Part is fermented on the skins in wooden and concrete vats // The rest in wooden barrels // Ageing in wooden barrels for a year.
One to remember for Stephanie and Eduard. Spring brought them heavy frosts and hailstorms happened during the summer. Autumn by contrast was peaceful, forgiving, and warm, and in the end, delivered them tiny amounts but amazing qualities of grapes. To let their wines take it all in and tell the story of the year through their complex characters, they decided to let their family members united, to go for a family reunion. Cumulative energy-focused strength and collective finesse. The Spirit of youth and the wisdom of maturity united. This unique bottling tells the story of a year in the vineyards.
Gut Oggau is a 20-hectare estate located in the small market town of Oggau, on Lake Neusiedl in the Austrian province of Burgenland. The estate is run by Stephanie and Eduard Eselböck-Tscheppe, whose focus on quality is a permanent quest. As members of the Demeter Association, they truly understand the significance of biodynamic cultivation. Their aim is to achieve a natural balance in the vineyards and to process the grapes as gently as possible so that the wines can achieve their utmost potential. All their wines are vineyard-specific and express both the vine age and character of the terroir. Each wine is striking as an individual, and together they form a unique wine family. With only 15 to 18,000 bottles a year, Gut Oggau’s wines are one of Austria’s most sought-after.
