A fresh, citrus-driven expression of Chardonnay that's perfect for anyone who enjoys a leaner, more mineral white. The skin contact here isn't extreme and adds more intensity to the palate and excellent grip on the finish. This is aged for 2 years in barrel, which also balances out the zingy acidity and creates a rounded, balanced wine. Think lemon, pithy citrus notes and crisp green apple!
Matthias Warnung honed his craft around the world, most noticeably with the famed natural winemaker Craig Hawkins of Testalonga in South Africa. He adopts a similar approach in his wines, working organically with natural ferments and as little human intervention as possible. His wines show a new approach to the classic varieties of Kamptal, Austria and the results are very exciting indeed.
The Austrian wine region of Kamptal flows in Matthias Warnung’s blood. He was born and raised at his family’s tiny winery, where he fell in love with the picturesque vines clinging to steep terraces along the river.
Before founding his eponymous winery, Matthias travelled extensively. He honed his craft around the world, most notably with famed natural winemakers Craig Hawkins of Testalonga in South Africa and Tom Lubbe of Matassa in France’s Roussillon region. Craig and Tom taught Matthias that great wines start in the vineyard, offering pure reflections of their terroir, and the unique qualities of the grapes grown there. He adopted this ethos in his own wines, working organically with natural ferments and as little human intervention as possible. By his own admission, Matthias Warnung’s goal is to make and share the kind of wines that he himself loves to drink. His enthusiasm and passion are as electric as the expressive wines he creates!
