Andreas Tscheppe Blue Salamander

Andreas Tscheppe Blue Salamander


Country: Austria

Region: Styria

Grapes: Chardonnay

Vintage: 2019

Andreas Tscheppe is making beautiful examples of natural wine in Styria. These vineyard sites are gorgeously terraced and are bursting with life: butterflies, dragonflies and beetles are just a few of the creatures you will find while walking through these vines, and they are all represented on the labels of his wines. Andreas works only with white grapes, some of which are fermented with the skins to produce orange wines. All the winemaking involves a minimum of 18 months time in barrel for the wines to integrate with oxygen well and come into their own before being bottled.

This is 100% Chardonnay with aromas of ripe citrus, meadow flowers, wheat and toast. Rich and opulent on the palate with a full body and acidity and a lingering finish of savoury pastry, spice and a touch of coconut.
