Dry, vibrant rose with notes of cherry, raspberry and mineral touches.
Created by Eduard and Stephanie Tscheppe in 2007, Gut Oggau is a leader in the movement towards sustanable and natural winemaking in Austria’s Burgenland wine region. Working with vines that haven’t seen pesticides or chemical treatments for over 20 years, they are able to bottle wines with incredible life and vigour. The Winifred Rosé is a blend of Blaufrankish and Zweigelt, hand harvested from 35 year old vines. The wine is bottled unfined, unfiltered, with zero addition of sulfur.
When Eduard and Stephanie started Gut Oggau they noticed that each wine had a distinct personality just like people. Each wine has been labelled and named based on an evolving personality that grows from vintage to vintage. This is how they described Winifred – “The daughter from Timotheus’s first marriage, which ended suddenly when his wife disappeared mysteriously over night. Just like her cousins, Winifred has a winning and open personality, is sociable, and of a cheerful disposition. Upon a first encounter she can appear to be somewhat shy and reticent, but those that make her acquaintance remember her as a unique, refreshing and charming young lady with an inquisitive mind.”
