TLZ Weiss No. 8 NV
A Wine That
is like a warm hug in liquid form. Franz and Christine's 'Weiss' is always a blend of their most common variety. It somehow captures the emotion of their philosophy - allowing their vineyards to be and somehow the result of it gives you an intense energy sip after sip. If you ever thought how wines taste that are born out of emotional perfection, this would come very close to it.

Where and How?
This is 70% Pinot Blanc and 30% Chardonnay, grown on gneiss soils with significant iron and silica content. Rigorous sorting is carried out when hand harvesting, so only the finest grapes are used. The wine ferments naturally, and ages for 11 months in used wooden barrels (500L). 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.
