Where and How?
Franz & Christine wanted to make a “house wine” that involved all different vineyards and varieties that they farm. This includes the recently (2015) planted hybrid, disease resistant varieties such as Muscaris, Souvignier Gris, Bronner and a Swiss clone of Cabernet. Catsilver refers to the shining silica stones that are found throughout their vineyards. All the white grapes undergo a maceration on the skins and the red grapes are directly pressed, before all being aged in used oak barrels for eight months.
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.
