Variety // Blaufrankisch, Zweigelt
Region // Burgenland, Austria
Eduard & 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. The Maskerade Rot is a 30-year-old hilltop vineyard on slate and limestone soil. It is mostly a blend of Blaufrankisch and Zweigelt with a few others thrown in. Grapes are hand harvested and hand destemmed, then wild fermented in used 3000L barrels. The wine goes through elevage in the same barrels for about 8 months, with no batonnage, before being bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with zero added sulphur. This is cult status juice.
