The 2016 vintage has probably been the most challenging in the young history of the Gut Oggau winery. Spring frosts and hail in summer plagued the winegrowers, leaving less than 40% of the harvest.
Autumn, however, was conciliatory and delivered top quality, but too little to bottle the family members individually. So winemakers Stephi and Eduard had to let go of that idea and dazzle the remaining wines. Not many winegrowers act with such a clear head, but they knew that if you are making "natural wine", you have to work with what nature gives you.
The result of the 2016 challenge are three wonderful wines.
The Gut Oggau Weiß 2016 is a blend of the aromatic Emeram (Gewürztraminer), the profound Mechthild (Grüner Veltliner), Timotheus (Grüner Veltliner + Pinot Blanc) and the light-footed, cheeky Theodora (Grüner Veltliner + Welschriesling). Pure, elegant, with a beautiful melt that is clear as a bell and with a seductive aroma.
As the saying goes, family has to stick together and in this case it does so in the best way possible.
