Josephine by Gut Oggau is a spicy, intense lady that comes from a beautiful 30 year old plantation which is planted with the rare Rösler grape on a limestone soil.
Rösler is a fungus- and frost-resistant new breed from the 1960s, which can be found almost exclusively in Burgenland. It produces fruity and tannic wines with a powerful colour.
The umbels are destemmed and fermented spontaneously in 500 L, 1000 L and 1500 L barrels. After 8 months of maturation in used 500 L barrels, this lady is bottled without batonnage, additional sulphur, unembellished and unfiltered.
Timotheus’ second wife and Winifred’s stepmother. An easy-going and somewhat voluptuous lady, she first found the love of her life at a slightly older age.
Shaped by her tempestuous youth, she is an unconventional type that radiates vitality and enjoys life to the fullest. Feels at home in company, is open to strangers and rewards friends with deep insights into her innermost qualities.
