Where and How?
This is Sauvignon Blanc with a touch of Gelber Muskateller, grown on gneiss soils with significant iron and silica content. Rigorous sorting is carried out in the vineyard when hand harvesting, so only the finest grapes are used. The grapes are macerated with the juice for four weeks, fermenting naturally, before pressed and aged for 11 months in 500L acacia and oak barrels. Bottled unfined, unfiltered and without 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.
