2017 Gut Oggau Atanasius Red Blend

Burgenland, Austria

Gut Oggau is a bit of a natural cult thing right now. Sip this with a group of friends and you'll start to understand why. Rated in the top 1% of wines in the world on Vivino, the grapes are hand harvested and destemmed. Fermentation took place in used 500 and 1200 litre barrels; the juice has about 3 weeks of skin contact. Notes of cherry, raspberry, blueberry, oak and minerals. Medium acidity, youthful and fresh.

2017 Gut Oggau 'Atanasius' Red Blend
About the maker

The quiet town Oggau, in eastern Austria, is home to Eduard and Stephanie Tscheppe who are making wines from a re-claimed vineyard that are shocking the wine world.

Having restored a 17th century winery that had been abandoned for 20 years, beginning to immediately harvest grapes biodynamically was a relatively straight forward task. Prior to this, Eduard made conventional wine in Styria and Stephanie operated a Michelin star restaurant. Each bottle has it's own fictional character/persona, as noted by the face artworks on the bottles. children, Atanasius, Theodora, and Winifred, are bolder wines, where as the parents, Oschuari, Emmeram, Timotheus, and Josephine have more body and power. Most of the vineyards grapes are blended, so there will often be little reference to the grape variety, however, the main grape varieties they do work with are Blaufrankish, Zweigelt Grüner Veltliner, Welchriesling, Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc), and Gewurtzraminer.
