2020 Maskerade Weiss 1L
The Maskerade Weiss is a 30-year-old vineyard on gravel and limestone soil. There are several varietals planted, including Gruner, Weissburgunder and Welschriesling. Grapes are hand harvested and destemmed before being wild fermented in old 1000L and 1500L barrels. The wine goes through elevage in the same barrels for about 8 months, with no batonnage, then bottled without fining or filtration, and zero added sulphur. This is the kind of wine you need at your dinner table, always.
Eduard and Stephanie Tscheppe run a 14ha biodynamic estate in Burgenland, crafting distinctive single plot wines from native varietals. Each potion is separated by personality, their labels forming a flavourous fictional family tree. Gut Oggau have become one the most sought after, cult-status wines in Austria.
