Gut Oggau Theodora
Grapes: Gruner Veltliner, Welschriesling
Gut Oggau is a 14 hectare wine estate on the edge of Lake Neusiedl in Burgenland owned by husband and wife Eduard Tscheppe and Stephanie Eselböck-Tscheppe. Stephanie and Eduard us biodynamic farming principles to achieve a natural vine balance and process the grapes as gently as possible to create vibrant, ethereal wines that are some of the most sought after in Austria.
Theodora is a Gruner Veltliner and Welschriesling from 35 year old vines grown in sand and clay. Harvested by hand, the grapes are then fermented and aged in old oak with a few hours skin contact. A silky, mineral wine with aromas of exotic spice, melon and pear leading to a bright, lightly savoury finish.
