Franz and Christine Strohmeier cultivate 10 hectares of vines in western Styria known for its progressive natural wine movement. Part of the ‘Schmecke das Leben’ collective, the Strohmeiers work alongside Tauss, Muster, Werlitsch and Andreas Tscheppe to promote sustainability and minimal intervention winemaking.
Textural and cerebral, this is the first time they have made this wine (hence the No 1.) due to severe hail drastically affecting their harvest, the only white they made that year.
Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay direct pressed and elevaged for 18 months in old 1000 litre barrels.
Savoury, saline and citric with flashes of ginger and fennel tops.
This is stunning wine in its own very unique way for the curios drinker.
