A note from the Oggau family on their beloved Mechthild:
"We are ever curious to know what story Mechthild will tell next, or what mood we will find her in. She has a delicate yet precise nature that astonishes us every time. You’ll discover a character who doesn’t court attention, but still you are drawn towards her, waiting to drink in her beauty and sophistication. She responds with candour, direct and honest yet with a certain cool and carefree quality. Open yourself up to her elegant, enigmatic character. She’ll make you feel happier and wiser every sip."
Vinification method: The grapes are hand-harvested from a single 60-year-old plot on limestone and slate soils. They're then desemmed, fermented on the skins for 2 days in large old oak vats before being carefully pressed on a vertical press that is over 2 centuries old!
Matured for 2 years in old 500L barrels. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, no added SO2.
Tasting notes: medium-bodied, concentrated, elegant, powerful, mango, toasted nuts, asian pear
