A generous blend of Muskat Ottonel and Weissburgunder (aka Pinot Blanc), sourced from carefully grown biodynamic vines. Nearly two weeks of skin contact, followed by amphora ageing, lends itself to a deeper, orangey-pink hue and a lightly tannic texture. The clay bottle is brimming with exotic notes of kumquat, persimmon and grapefruit, with fennel seed and lemongrass. Layers of complexity that work especially well with aromatically spiced dishes.
Gernot and Heike Heinrich put their heart and soul into their wines and it shows in this diverse range with energy and finesse. They have never been afraid to innovate - after taking over Gernot’s family winery in 1985 they were among the first in the region to produce high-quality reds, seeing the potential in local varietals like Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt and St Laurent. Heinrich has vineyards on the Leithaberg, southwest of Vienna, and also on the other side of Lake Neusiedl where the gentle slopes of the Pannonian Plain give a warmer microclimate.
They are passionate about biodynamics because they feel it’s right for the planet but also because Gernot believes that the best wines express a sense of place and that they can only do this if they're rooted in a biologically diverse environment and the vines live in symbiosis with a healthy ecosystem. They have a flock of the friendliest, most contented looking sheep we’ve ever met, as well as ducks and hens, and beehives in some of their vineyards!
