The top white cuvée of the domaine, made in tiny quantities from their oldest vines, with awesome structure and aging potential.

Grapes: Gruner Veltliner

Vineyard: 60+-year-old plot on limestone and slate. Biodynamically farmed by Steffi and Eddi

Making of: the grapes are hand-harvested and destemmed, fermented on skins spontaneously in bigger old oak vats and painstakingly, carefully pressed on their more than 200 years old vertical press. Matured for 2 years in old 500-liter barrels. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, no SO2 added.

Personality: The head of the family and mother of the Gut Oggau vineyard. A resolute and strong elderly lady, who continues to guide the fortunes of the Burgenland clan and defies all of life’s trials and tribulations like a gnarled oak in a storm. Mechthild always has a ready ear, but constantly adheres to her principles. She is the “kind-hearted grandmother” of nostalgia that one trusts, but she can also be secretive and polarizing.
