For the first time, three new personalities will be bottled in an elegant litre bottle and re-introduced to the family as white, rosé and red wines (Maskerade). New personalities at Gut Oggau account for new vineyards and since the true character, the recently acquired vineyards, have yet to be revealed, they are initially expanded as a mixed sentence and hide behind a mask. Until the day of its revelation, but that will take some time.
The Maskerade Red is produced at the Gut Oggau estate in Burgenland by Lake Neusiedlersee. The estate is run by Eduard Tscheppe and his wife Stephanie Eselböck-Tscheppe. Stephanie and Eduard focus on quality as a permanent quest, their aim is to achieve a natural vine balance and process the grapes as gently as possible, allowing them to make the best use of their vineyard’s strength. All their wines are vineyard-specific and express both the vine age and the character of these indigenous Austrian varieties. When they began to work with the wines in the cellar, they noticed that each wine seemed so alive with its own personality, that they decided to craft labels centred around the personality inside each bottle. Thus they created a family of wines: each wine is given the name of one family member and the artist Jung von Matt draws a face for each label. Most of the vineyards are field blended, and therefore there is little mention of grape varieties here, but they do work with 6 main grape varieties– Blaufrankish, Zweigelt Grüner Veltliner, Welchriesling, Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc), and Gewurztraminer.
“Behind this new member of the family is not a lapidary second bottling of the youth series of Gut Oggau, but a very individual substance. Steffi and Eduard have acquired some wonderful vineyards with different grape varieties in the past, they are managed in the spirit of the special philosophy of the winegrower couple. In the Weinwerdung, these new members of the Gut Oggau wine family will be treated as lovingly as anyone else, but these vineyards are currently being converted to Demeter, and it will be a while before the distinctive character of the vineyards becomes apparent Then their true personality will come to light, until the day they show us their mysterious, beautiful ego stay hidden behind this mask for now. “
With very moderate alcohol values of 12.0% alcohol for red wine, this wine is absolutely stunning! The Maskerade wines flow elegantly over the palate. Juicy, crisp, cool and fresh with airy-light transparency. Depending on your taste, drink a bit cooler and also allow some air (in the glass).
