Organic / Biodynamic / Natural / No Sulphur Added

Organic and biodynamically farmed Zweigelt and Merlot from soils comprised of gravel, sand and chalk. The average age of the vines is 30 years, they are harvested by hand. Twelve day maceration with spontaneous fermentation in neutral oak barrels with indigenous yeasts. No fining, no filtering and no added SO2.

A chillable medium-bodied red that begs to be drunk. This has more mid-palate than many other quaffable Austrian reds. Notes of cassis, blackberry, and pepper. Tannins are soft but present enabling the wine to be a perfect charcuterie pairing.

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.
