Grüner Veltliner, Burgenland, Austria
Some wines require deep examination and patience but this dry & crispy white wine is raring to go and happy to be accepted exactly the way it is! From Burgenland, Austria, one of our absolutely favourite regions for incredibly textured & powerful whites, this lovely juice tells us all about its days in the countryside— crispy green apples, white peaches, Bartlett pears and healthy crank of white pepper. Pair it with literally everything like that brief period of time everyone was obsessed with putting eggs on things except this time it's a totally welcome gesture that everyone will appreciate.

Zweigelt & Gruner Veltliner, Kamptal, Austria | Freakum Dress as a zingy, herbaceous & slightly cloudy rosé! Martin and Anna Arndorfer are a winemaking power couple based in Kamptal, Austria. Both of them come from winemaking families, which comes across in the obvious craftsmanship in their wines – always joyful, vibrant, balanced and delicious the next day. But the Arndorfers love a cheeky wink of subversion, a little razzle dazzle, if you will – so the Zweigelt grapes undergo a short skin maceration before being co-fermented with Gruner Veltliner skins for two weeks, followed by 6 months in tank and barrel and no fining or filtration. Slightly cloudy but 100% funky fresh fun – raspberry lemonade, rosemary garnish, fresh sage, a zesty, citrus-driven acid and a whisper of potpourri tannins. A slightly off-kilter rosé for kicking around in your Betsey Johnson best!

Zweigelt & St. Laurent, Burgenland, Austria | When asked to describe her philosophy on winemaking, “I love playing with a fine blade,” says natural wine poet Judith Beck. Located in the natural wine capital of Austria - Burgenland - she inherited her winery from her father after having trained in France and Chile. True to form, Ink is the most refreshing Zweigelt & St Laurent blend that pours like a silky wine-hued river. It would be the perfect wine to drink if you were Virginia Woolf writing something brooding and brilliant with an old-timey fountain pen— by candlelight, of course. Velvety, plush, and royal purple. Sprinkle of ginger snap baking spice with the freshest dark fruit flavours, like getting blackberry seeds stuck in your teeth but you’re grinning anyway.
