Voodoo Child 2019 — Pinot Gris
A Wine That
is so unusual that you would struggle to believe that it has been made of white grapes rather than red grapes! It's rich colour stems from the skins of Pinot Gris, which lend the wine intense, umami-like flavours. Red thai curry meets ice-cold capirinhas. Open this bottle the next time you want to trick and treat your friends, and share with them a true discovery.

Where and How?
Pinot Gris from one of Michael Wenzel's organically grown limestone vineyards around his home town of Rust.
If Michael lived 150 years ago he may well be one of Europe’s most famous winemakers. If Michael lived 150 years ago, he may well have been one of Europe’s most famous winemakers. Back then, Furmint was one of the king of grapes and the wines made from the variety were a go-to choice, just like fine Burgundy or Bordeaux.
However, back in the 1990s, when Michael took over from his father, customers who entered their cellars were preferring to go for Sauvignon or dry Muskateller, as that is what everyone else was selling. Despite the lack of commercial interest, Michael continued to grow and bottle Furmint and time proved him right. With the renaissance of indigenous grapes in Burgenland and curious professionals all around the world, Michael’s path proved the right one and he is now one of Austria’s most respected farmers and winemakers.
