Gut Oggau is a biodynamic wine estate in Oggau, Burgenland, Austria owned and operated by Eduard Tscheppe and Stephanie Tscheppe-Eselböck. Edward grew up making wine with his father and Stephanie’s family have a Michelin star restaurant. In 2007 the couple focused their energies into reviving a dilapidated winery, including a 200 year old screw press and abandoned vineyards. Their approach was to farm according to organic and biodynamic principles from the beginning and the results are impressive and their wines have garnered a cult-like following amongst natural wine lovers worldwide.

Tasting Notes

Cecilia is an idiosyncratic and delicious dry rosé.   Crunchy and bright red fruit on the nose and palate.  This is a wine that can be enjoyed any time of year.  Drink it on its own, sip with charcuterie, have a glass with fried fish or seafood pasta.  When you aren’t sure what you’re in the mood for, Cecilia might just be the wine you are looking for.    

Method

Cecilia rosé is a “gemischter satz” (a field blend) of red and white grape varieties grown on a 1.4ha plot on limestone that Steffi and Eduard have recultivated.  The grapes are hand-picked.  2/3 of the grapes are pressed directly and 1/3 are crushed and undergo a short maceration. The must ferments spontaneously in large wooden vats and then matures in 1500l wooden barrels. No fining, no filtering, no sulfur addition.

Steffi and Edi on this wine: “Meet Cecilia, the new family member! You see her, you taste her, you feel her, she inspires you. She doesn’t care about conventions, and won’t be put in a box. She shows you that it’s good to be a little bit different. Mixed in white and red, rooted on limestone she shines bright and proves there’s much more beyond the defined categories. A lover of horses, her soil releases distinct character; we know this is only the start of a beautiful journey we’ll share together. A journey into being one’s true self, without any pretension. Together with Cecilia, we care less about trying to impress, and only about remaining independent.”
