Gut Oggau, Family Reunion Rose 2016
One of the most recognisable producers out there, with a cult following addicted to their wines and labels. The Gut Oggau Family Reunion Rose 2016 is a very special wine, A rare limited edition bottling of Blaufrankisch and Zwiegelt from old and young vines which creates a much more profound and deeper Rose than Winifred. The colour is deep, light cherry, the nose pulls you in and the palate is rich, slightly spicy but incredibly fresh. A delicious Rose which could be treated more like a red with the capacity to age however it is drinking beautifully right now. Future Unicorn!
Gut Oggau is a 14 hectare Austrian wine estate located in the province of Burgenland by the Lake Neusiedl. The estate is run by Eduard Tscheppe and his wife Stephanie, daughter of a 2 Michelin star restaurant owner. It is a certified biodynamic estate with each wine coming from a single plot of vines with different terroirs showing different expressions in the wine. The individual personalities of the wine are expressed in the faces on the labels created by Jung von Matt (German designer) and brought together in the Gut Oggau family tree. A unique and fascinating way of describing the wines, they taste every bit as intriguing as the labels suggest.
