2019 Koppitsch Homok
In 2011, Alex and Maria Koppitsch took control of the families 6 ha of vines in Burgenland, 40 minutes from the Austrian capital, Vienna.
From the years 2005 to 2011 Alex worked alongside Gerhard Pittnauer in the neighbouring village of Gols. It was during this time that Gerhard converted his vineyard practices to biodynamic farming and Alex took these principles and applied them to the family farm in 2007. This is 40% Gruner Veltliner, 40% Weissburgunder and 20% Sauvignon Blanc. The fruit comes from the Seefeld vineyard on sandy soils. Whole bunches are pressed, partially co-fermented. Elevage in tank and large acacia for
7 months on gross lees. Unfined, unfiltered, minimal sulphur at bottling. Zippy and zesty loaded with fruit: lime, papaya, guava and grapefruit.
