2019 Gut Oggau Theodora Magnum
The Gut Oggau winery, helmed by Eduard Tscheppe and Stephanie Tscheppe-Eselbock, produces magnificent, esoteric and ultimately collectible wines. Taking time to restore an abandoned vineyard in the Burgenland, they have converted their entire estate to biodynamics. Each cuvee label has been designed by artist Jung Von Matt, featuring a fictional family member’s face. The face is meant to represent the personality of the wine inside. They range from young, electric, jovial, to complex, age-worthy and thought provoking.
Theodora is Wiltrude’s daughter. She is cheerful, animated and light-hearted. Despite being a cheeky character, she is certainly the most generous, steadfast and reliable in the family. She has a close relationship with her beloved grandmother Mechtild and her uncle Emmeram. Gruner Veltliner and Welschriesling, destemmed and fermented in large format oak. Sits on lees for 9 months, with no stirring. Bottled without a hint of sulphur. Lemon pith, lanoline, lemon thyme, whey, jasmine. A lovely, zippy little number.
