Where and How?
This is the ancient indigenous variety, Blauer Wildbacher, planted on rough gneiss soils that are high in both silica and iron. Short, three-four hour maceration before being pressed into used 500L barrels where it ferments naturally. Aged in barrels for eight months. Unfiltered, unfined and no added sulphites.
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.
