Gut Oggau Weinland Mechtild 2015
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!
