Great orange wine from Austrian Legend, Andreas Tscheppe.
He is at the forefront of Biodynamic winemaking in the country and part of his ethos is the respect and preservation of his vineyard's ecosystem. He celebrates the little creatures living between the vines by putting them centre stage on his labels: butterflies, dragonflies, stag beetle like in this case and more.
Beautifully aromatic with juniper and orange on the nose followed by mandarin, apricot jam and gentle tannins on the palate.
Mineral and Vibrant.
