Details

In this unique collection of three wines, you taste the special qualities of a vineyard and of a wine producer that gives a great deal of passion and desire into every wine they produce. They are 3 wines which have captured the frustration and sacrifice of a very difficult year in the vineyards, when nature decided to not be kind and to make Eduard and Stephanie fight for they wine and struggle to achieve their success. That is natural wine making, one is in nature's hands. They succeeded and produced a tiny quantity of 3 wines rather than the usual 10. That the wines are delicious is a given if you know this producer. What makes them special is that they are a one off, a taste of all the grapes and all the vineyards blended into 3 wines. A fabulous and rare gift for a natural wine lover.

Gut Oggau is a 14 hectare Austrian wine estate located in the province of Burgenland by the Lake Neusiedl. The estate is run by Eduard Tscheppe and his wife Stephanie, daughter of a 2 Michelin star restaurant owner. It is a certified biodynamic estate with each wine coming from a single plot of vines with different terroirs showing different expressions in the wine. The individual personalities of the wine are expressed in the faces on the labels created by Jung von Matt (German designer) and brought together in the Gut Oggau family tree. A unique and fascinating way of describing the wines, they taste every bit as intriguing as the labels suggest.

2016 was a vintage to forget for Stephanie and Eduard. Spring brought them heavy frosts and hailstorms happened during the summer. Autumn by contrast was peaceful, warm and forgiving, and in the end delivered tiny quantities of amazing quality grapes. 'To let our wines take it all in and tell the story of the year through their complex characters, we decided to let the family members unite, to go for a family reunion.' The result wines of cumulative energy, focused strength and collective finesse. The Spirit of youth and the wisdom of maturity united in this unique and limited bottling which tells the story of a very up and down year in the vineyards.

Our opinion on the wines. 'We have finally had the opportunity to taste the wines. One word describes them above all; energy. The wines have a fantastic life force. In our view they are still young and the 2016 Red has a fabulous life ahead of it if you can manage to wait. With more elegance than Bertholdi and more substance than Atanasius, this is a new vision for Gut Oggau, red wine more in the Burgundian style, with finesse, acidity and subtlety. The white too has plenty of character, still very young, the aromas are wild and beguiling, notes of Gewurz from Emmeram come through and the acid of Mechtild and the yeasty funkiness of Theodora are also present. With 3 years in bottle, this wine will shine, with 10, it will be stunning. Finally the Gorgeous Rose, more light red or full Rose in style, texture and cream are layered with rich strawberry fruit, the palate is very voluptuous already, nothing like a young Winifred, although delicious now, this is also a Rose for the cellar.'
