Notes from the Producer:
UWE
“Break on through to the other side”: you can freely describe my career based on this song by jim morrison & the doors. From the waiter and sommelier in renowned viennese restaurants – including the Steirereck – in 1990 I decided to give myself up to the passion of wine as a winemaker. after attending the wine academy in rust, i founded my own winery in welgersdorf in southern burgenland. in order to make the kind of wine there that was already hinted at in our region, but had to be much more independent in my imagination. as independent as the terroir on which they grow: the calcareous Koenigsberg, the “opalen” Tschaterberg and of course the (nomen est omen) iron and slate-containing Eisenberg.
VINEYARD
My vineyard area is 22 hectares, most of which is planted with red wine varieties: mainly Blaufränkisch and some pinot noir and merlot. my white, region-specific grape varieties are welschriesling, grüner veltliner and white burgundy. the clayey-loamy terroir with a high iron content on ancient steep slopes enables very characterful, almost cool-looking red wines to be produced. i rely on puristic, natural viticulture. herbs and plants between the rows can and should grow there. they, the pannonian climate with hot days and cool nights as well as the unique soil give my wines everything they need. nature makes my wines, i see above all that the right thing happens at the right moment: cutting, thinning, reading – no more and no less.
CELLAR
what nature supplies is carefully implemented in the cellar. all wines ferment spontaneously and slowly mature on the lees in barrels of various sizes. no technology, merciless simplicity, pronounced minerality – wines with a practiced origin: courageous, unadorned and with an almost dogmatic purism: pure slate!
