Gut Oggau Atanasius is a natural, young red wine made with the Blaufränkisch and Zweigelt varieties by the Gut Oggau winery in Neusiedlersee-Hügelland (Burgenland).
Gut Oggau Atanasius comes from a plot of vineyards planted in calcareous gravel soil where biodynamic techniques are used so that each strain can express both the age and the character of the native Austrian varieties. The grapes are harvested by hand.
Once the plot is harvested, the Gut Oggau Atanasius grape is partially destemmed. Then it macerates for 4 weeks and ferments with native yeasts in oak vats. After that, it ages for 11 months in oak barrels of 1000 and 1500 litres. The wine is not clarified or filtered and no sulphites are added.
