Gut Oggau - 2014 Wiltrude Grüner Veltliner
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.
This is perhaps Gut Oggau’s rarest wine. Made only in the best vintages, Wiltrude is a Grüner Veltliner harvested at Auslese ripeness and historically made into an oxidative sweet wine. This vintage was much different though, as the wild yeast fermented the wine to full dryness. It was then aged in neutral Austrian oak for 4 years without topping up to mimic Vin Jaune, one of Stephanie and Eduard’s favorite wines to drink. It was bottled without fining, filtration, or sulphur. This wine takes you on a gustatory voyage through an ethereal land brimming with honeydew melon, yellow apple and sage. Don't look back.
