Burgenland is one of the 4 main wine regions of Austria, composed of 5 Sub regions, Eisenberg (515 hectatres) to the south grows the Iconic Austrian Grape Blaufränkisch. Leithaberg, where the town of Oggau lies, is thought to be the original home of red wine in Austria. Mittelburgenland is known for its very expressive reds, with Blaufränkisch and bold Cab Savs being the favourites of winemakers out there. Neusiedlersee (home of Infamous Austrian winemaker Christian Tschida). As with the famous namesake just mentioned, this region is full of experimentation with bold fruity wines, they also experiment a fair bit with Noble rot (Equivalent to a tree dried natural). Finally Rosalia is home to spicy reds and fruity whites.

Gut Oggau Weinland Theodora is drier than other vintages so it’s better suited to lighter fish dishes. A blend of Gruner Veltliner and Welsch Riesling this is dry, full, funky, tasty. Theodora is complex and intellectual with length and body, intriguing aromas of under-ripe melon, kiwi, and lemon rind

Description

Gruner Veltliner, Welsch Riesling

35-year-old Grüner Veltliner and Welschriesling vines are planted on gravel and limestone. Two thirds of the grapes are de-stemmed and crushed into used 500L, 1000L, and 1500L barrels to ferment and mature for nine months without batonnage. One third of the grapes are fermented on skins for a short period of time. They capture a small amount of CO2 at bottling which keeps the wine fresh. It is unfined, unfiltered, and has no added Sulphur.
