Tasting Notes: Gut Oggau Weiss is a dry, medium-bodied white wine made with a mixture of the grapes used to make the Theodora, Timotheus, Emmeram and Mechthild white wines. A whole family gathering where the spirit of youth and the wisdom of maturity meet. Grapes are hand harvested and partially destemmed. One third of the grapes ferment on the skins for about 3 weeks while the rest are directly pressed, after which, the wine is then re-blended. Fermentation takes place in used 500-liter barrels. The wine stays in these barrels for an elevage of about 11 months, with no batonnage. The wine is bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with zero addition of sulfur.
