Organic / Biodynamic / Natural / Orange Wine / No Sulphur Added

Organic and biodynamically farmed Welschriesling and Samling from soils comprised of gravel, sand and chalk. The average age of the vines is 25 years, they are harvested by hand. Seven hour maceration of Welschriesling, six week maceration of Sämling, spontaneous fermentation in neutral oak barrels with indigenous yeasts. No fining, no filtering and no added SO2.

This skin-contact white wine is bright and aromatic, notes of pear, citrus, and green apple. The color is delicate, not orange, and is slightly cloudy. On the palate the white has beautiful lift and zippy acidity. This refreshing white can be enjoyed by all and should be, it’s delicious!

Georg Schmelzer is a fourth-generation winemaker in the Gols region near Lake Neusiedl in Austria. Georg’s winemaking philosophy is in line with the Demeter guidelines for biodynamic farming. He uses a variety of biodynamic preparations for the revitalization of the soil and keeping his vines as healthy as possible. And of course, no herbicides or pesticides.

The harvest is done by hand and the wine is aged in neutral oak without filtering, fining, or addition of any sulfur. It’s this respect for the land and the ability to let the grapes express themselves with minimal intervention that makes Schmelzer’s Weingut so unique.
