Timotheus by Gut Oggau is a long-distance runner and a complex, long-lasting white wine from vineyards that are about 40 years old. Eduard Tscheppe-Eselböck said about Timotheus: "Here, too, as usual, Grüner Vetliner and Weissburgunder, come across as very likeable, relaxed and exuberant, a real flatterer." One third of the wine is fermented on the skins for about 3 weeks and the remaining berries are pressed directly.
The wine is fermented spontaneously in used 500 litre barrels and after one year of maturing, it is bottled unembellished and unfiltered without batonnage or additional sulphur.
Very spicy, herbal, pleasant citrus notes, strong minerality and medium body with a fine acidity with a lot of personality in the glass. This wine is a great, variable accompaniment to food and shows what the adult generation at Gut Oggau can achieve.
Mechthild’s and Bertholdi’s son, Joshuari’s and Emmeram’s brother. He impresses people with his strong, powerful and balanced character. He stands with both feet firmly planted on the ground, but is nonetheless open-minded and always looking for new challenges.
Timotheus is regarded as confident, a man of substance and even refined. He is someone, who due to his winning ways, quickly makes friends anywhere.
