Tasting note

2015 Gut Oggau Joschuari

A biodynamically produced Blaufränkisch from Oggau on Lake Neusiedl in Austria. Ruby red in colour, dark and opaque. However, hardly cloudy, although the wine was not filtered.

The bouquet immediately reminds me of hay and wet grass. Not unusual for “naturally” produced and spontaneously fermented wines, but a matter of taste. There are no distracting aromas here, however. With time, red berry fruit comes through. The slightly sweet spiciness suggests aging in wooden barrels.

Elegant and fresh in the mouth. Red berry with a crisp and persistent acidity. Spice and vanilla are still quite present at first, but sour cherry soon comes to the fore.

Overall a very fine and interesting wine, somewhat avant-garde. The last time I had this wine in the glass was a year ago and from then I remember it more fruity and hedonistic (unfortunately no note). Today it struck me as comparatively cool. Still pleasant and certainly with a few more years of cellaring potential.

Drink through 2025.

9Wines with a DM9 to DM12 rating are very good wines, above average even in the world of fine wine. That means these wines have been produced really well. They are pure, balanced, and have no flaw whatsoever. They begin to show complexity. Moreover, these wines have their own character and transport typicity and terroir.
