Gut Oggau ‘Bertholdi’ (Red) Magnum 2013
Family Tree description – “Mechtild’s husband is her equal and a steadfast partner to his greatly loved spouse. A strong Burgenlander who is extremely versatile, but always down to earth and at one with nature. Very much the beloved and wise grandfather to his children, he has much to tell and is full of energy and joie de vivre. He has made his way, knows all the tricks and in spite of advancing age, is still gaining in class”.
“For me this is the crowning glory of the Gut Oggau range. Single vineyard Blaufränkisch is left on its stems and stalks for 6 weeks, resulting in a structured, complex, yet impressively balanced wine. “Hot”, rubber-tyre character to the nose, very focused ripe yet elegant red fruit. The finish lasts and lasts, staying fresh and slightly saline to the very end”. Tim Atkin MW
