Epicure (Indonesia) - - CELLAR CHOICE -

Alexan­der and Maria Koppitsch are en­thu­si­as­tic ad­her­ents of low in­ter­ven­tion wine­mak­ing with a fo­cus on tast­ing what the soil brings to the grape. Based in Neusiedl am See in Aus­tria where Alexan­der took over his fam­ily’s vine­yards, the es­tate is hand-farmed based on Ru­dolph Steiner’s bio­dy­namic prin­ci­ples. Fer­men­ta­tion takes place nat­u­rally without tem­per­a­ture con­trols, while wine rests on lees un­til bot­tled without fil­ter­ing and fin­ing. The blend of Zweigelt, St Lau­rent, Blaufrankisch and Syrah is juicy with a touch of struc­ture from ag­ing in large oak bar­rels, with ex­pected notes of dark cherry and black pep­per, and hints of lime­stone com­plex­ity. $46.90 from brown­bag­wines.co
