Where and How?

The four white grape varieties in this wine (Muskateller, Sauvignon Blanc, Welschriesling and Chardonnay, locally referred to as Morillon) are all grown in steeply sloping vineyards at an altitude of around 450m. The clay/silt limestone-rich soil here, known as Opok, is unique to the region and said to contribute to the unique and dense sense of minerality found in Sepp and Maria's wines.
The bunches of grapes were destemmed before gentle pressing over a period of four hours. Fermentation then took place naturally in large traditional oak foudres. The wine was then aged for two years in these foudres, left untouched, before being bottled unfiltered and unfined.

The Winemaker: Muster

The Muster wines have become some of the most celebrated wines of Austria, but this isn’t due to a specific or technical aspect of winemaking. There’s no magic recipe here — rather these wines are so good because they’re allowed to simply be themselves: this is wine, uninterrupted. There’s a certain energy found within these bottles; an energy that can only appear in wine if the raw material — the grapes — have an intrinsic balance. This balance, meanwhile, comes from years of getting to know their vines. And there’s one thing we can say with certainty: Sepp and Maria know their vines.
