Blanc d'Orange No.1 NV
A Wine That
takes orange wine and gives it rocket fuel via bubbles. Think grapefruit rind, white pepper and a touch of thyme. A super fine texture and delicate acidity makes this so balanced - a real masterpiece. This is modern art in wine.

Where and How?
This is a selection of varieties from the family’s minimally pruned vineyards, all laying on poor rocky soils. Sauvignon Blanc and Weissburgunder are given a short maceration on the skins, combined with approximately 15% direct-pressed Zweigelt. Fermented naturally in stainless steel tanks. Secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle. No SO2. Not disgorged.
The Winemaker: Strohmeier
Franz and Christine Strohmeier say it takes a special place to make a special wine. Their part of Styria gives them a pot of metaphorical luck. In the old days, it was cold and difficult to grow grapes organically here, but these days more sunlight provides optimal growing conditions. The Adriatic influence meets the cold mountain air, meaning any humidity from the high rainfall is dispersed. All of these special qualities give Franz and Christine the perfect, healthy grape material to turn artistically into wine. It is their belief and trust in nature’s rhythms that have led them to create some of the most compelling naturally-made wines. These are bottles to lose yourself in.
