Gut Oggau, Maskerade Rot 2020
Another new family member for Gut Oggau. This one is best served a bit chilled as it has almost no tannins. There is a slight fizziness on your tongue, which elevates the strawberry and cherry flavours that finish with some light hints of basil.
The flavours are great, but that isn't even the special thing about this wine. The grapes all come from vineyards that have been recently purchased by Steffi & Eduard. The vineyards themselves are still in Demeter conversion, so this wine is quite literally a journey to greatness. Pumped to watch how this develops over the next few years!

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.
