A Wine That
combines the signature 'Werlitsch energy' with a beautiful rich layer from the time the grapes spend on their skins. Think orange peel meets woodsmoke. A beautiful, textural and contemplative expression of Styria. Complete in every sense.

Where and How?
Glück is an exploration of tannin expression. This is blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay from the Ex Vero II section of the vineyard, planted on the middle slopes where the soil is composed of "opok" — limestone, sand and clay. The fruit is destemmed (whereas for Freude it is left as whole bunches). It ferments naturally while macerating with the skins for between four to six weeks in a large wooden cask. After being pressed, it is aged for two years in oak foudres.
The Winemaker: Werlitsch
They are wines of haunting aromas that age more impressively than most white Burgundies. They may be serious, fine wines, but they are in no way rigid or strict. Instead, they emanate good vibes and drinkability; testament to healthy farming and healthy wines. By giving the wines time and by not putting them into tight clothes by over-sulphuring them, he allows them to be true to themselves and to their place.
