Gut Oggau 'Maskerade' (Weiss)(1L) 2018
The 'Maskerade' series could be considered a bit of a snapshot in time within the family of Gut Oggau. As newly acquired vineyards get converted to biodynamics, wine is still produced, but the faces are masked until they show their full personality and character and can be welcomed into the family.
Grapes are hand harvested and destemmed. Fermentation takes place in used 1000 and 1500-liter barrels. The wine goes through elevage in the same barrels for about 8 months, with no batonnage. The wine is bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with zero addition of sulfur.
Expect lots of apple, pear and orangey citrus with some flinty minerals thrown in for good measure. Slightly funky, intriguing and delicious. Qualities that have basically become synonymous with any Gut Oggau productions.
