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.
A blend of 60% Grüner Veltliner, 40% Welschriesling. The vines are about 35 years old and grow on on gravel and limestone soil. Grapes are hand harvested, destemmed and rests for a few hours on the skins before pressing. Fermentation occurs in used 500L, 1000L, and 1500L barrels and matures for nine months without batonnage. A small amount of CO2 is retained at bottling which keeps the wine fresh and slightly spritzy upon opening. It is unfined, unfiltered, and has 25ppm of sulphur. Apple, pear, melon and herbs. Broad, mouthfiling texture.
