Gut Oggau Atanasius 2019
50% Zweigelt, 50% Blaufrankisch. Gut Oggau is a 13 hectares Austrian wine estate located in the province of Burgenland by the Lake Neusiedl. The estate is today run by Eduard Tscheppe – son of a winemaker – and his wife Stephanie Tscheppe-Eselböck – daughter of a 2 Michelin stars Austrian restaurant owner – who took over the estate in 2007. The winery is fully biodynamic and each wine is vinified with the grapes coming from a single plot, allowing to get a wide range of authentic and different personalities of wines. Each cuvée is named after a fictional character created by Jung von Matt (German designer) and is integrated in a family tree. Atanasius is a very affectionate and easy-going nature that is typical of the inhabitants of the Burgenland. Super juicy dark fruit, spice, and earth this cuvée is perfect with hamburgers and pizza. With only 15,000 bottles made per year, Gut Oggau's wines are some of the most sought after wines of Austria. Complex and original, there is no suprise in finding some of their cuvées in the best restaurants of Europe.
