The Weinland Mechtild 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. The grapes are hand-harvested. Maceration of skin & stems for 2 days before being pressed with the ancient wooden tree press. The wine is then aged in wood barrels.
“The head of the family and mother of the Gut Oggau vineyard. A resolute and strong elderly lady, who continues to guide the fortunes of the Burgenland clan and defies all of life’s trials and tribulations like a gnarled oak in a storm. Mechtild always has a ready ear, but constantly adheres to her principles. She is the “kind-hearted grandmother” of nostalgia that one trusts, but she can also be secretive and polarize opinion.”
The Weinland Mechtild is a top top Orange wine! This is 100% Gruner Veltliner from a much sought after 13ha estate. The colour is a deep lemon colour as this wine is unfiltered. It has an intense nose with aromas of ripe lemon, fresh bread and some white pepper. Dynamic, fresh and very lively!
