Luka Zeichmann Zuto Vino Je Dobro
Grapes: Chardonnay, Welschriesling
Luka Zeichmann is a talented young winemaker in the village of Jois in middle Burgenland, Austria. Working in parallel to his 'Joiseph' collaboration with Richard Artner and Alex Kagl which was founded in 2015, this new project finds Luka making wines under his own name in a small area an hour South of Jois.
Žuto Vino Je Dobro is a negoce wine using organic and biodynamic grown grapes from villages near Luka’s hometown of Unterpullendorf. It's Chardonnay, with 50% of the grapes macerated on skins for 2 weeks, and direct-pressed Welschriesling fermented separately before blending and ageing for 9 months on the lees in old small barriques. Bottled unfined, unfiltered and with zero sulphur additions. Textured, spicy, fun and juicy, this is incredibly moreish yet lingers on the palate.
