Gut Oggau, Theodora 2019
We know we shouldnt have a favourite, But.... Theodora is a beautiful blend of Grüner Veltliner and Welschriesling from organic vines in Burgenland. A tiny amount of time on skins and aged in old large casks makes for an incredibly balanced wine, bright, nervy and full of character. Super tiny allocation.
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.
