Vogelsang 2018

A wine that literally allows you to drink a piece of history. Vogelsang was the first vineyard to reintroduce Furmint to Austria in the 1980s after its disappearance almost 100 years earlier. For Michael the blue quartz soil gives the wine its unique character. The wine combines the elegance and salinity you might expect from Premier Cru Chablis but with acidity that may well rival some of the world’s best Mosel Rieslings.

From Austria`s oldest plantation of Furmint, planted in the 1980s, the Vogelsang vineyard is located in the surroundings of Rust in Burgenland.The soil is a conglomerate of mica schist, grey and blue quartz. Grapes are harvested at the peak of harvest, gently pressed on whole bunches and then transferred into large Austrian oak for 12 months.
