Blaufränkisch & St. Laurent, Burgenland, Austria | Yet another stylish & distinctive red from our beloved winemaking husband & wife duo Alexander & Maria Koppitsch. Grown on the finest limestone soils the Koppitsch’s Burgenland vineyards have to offer, this blend of 70% Blaufränkisch & 30% Saint Laurent is aged on gross lees in barrique for 2 years, giving us lots of woodsy “smoking a pipe in an oxblood leather armchair” vibes. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves— this red still drinks light & fresh, its cooled hot cocoa, grey & red clay and maple wood smoke character are balanced by a pure & precise hit of limestone minerality. Based on the deeper, richer fruit and structure of Blaufränkisch with a bright acid lift and flavours of sour pine needles, fermented grapefruit & bright tomato vine thanks to a sploosh of St. Laurent. The palate brings us handfuls of rinsed black olives, pumpkin patch & ume plum. We recommend pairing this unfined, unfiltered beauty with moonlit tarot card readings (you are guaranteed to draw The Magician), Nietzsche-themed book club meetings, bougie barbecues, & if at all possible, a night in an haunted castle.

Chardonnay & Weissburgunder, Burgenland, Austria | Koppitsch’s ‘Perspektive’ wines are meant to be explored as a meditation on terroir; an expression of the rock type, climate & soil of their expressive vineyards, situated at the shores of Lake Neusiedl. This body of water is so intrinsic to the biodynamic winemaking of Alexander & Maria Koppitsch that it shows up on all of their wine labels. In this case, it is dusky, moody and moonlit, which is exactly when, where & how we would love to enjoy this wine. We’re thinking sunset picnic & salty seabreeze on the night of the full moon. A rich & complicated white that you wish you could dive into. Vanilla oat milk, beeswax candle & a limestone minerality so pretty that you want to wear a chunk of it on a pendant. Fruit is fantastically, surprisingly tropical: Dole fruit cup, frozen mango, honeydew bubble tea, beachside creamsicle, poached pear in custard. Luscious mouthfeel from a full year of barrel-aging; unfined, unfiltered, utterly lucid.

Rotburger(Zweigelt), Blaufränkisch & Friends, Burgenland, Austria | Rozsa is a rose for those who like their rose to Taste Like Something. It’s bold, snarky, kind of a badass, but still completely fun & refreshing, like jumping into an ice-cold pool of watermelon rhubarb slushie on a scorching hot day. A blend of Rotburger, Blaufränkisch, St Laurent, Pinot Noir & Syrah, all five grapes are processed in the Koppitsches’ backyard (!), then thrown straight into a screw press in whole bunches without additives. Natural fermentation takes place in fibreglass & stainless steel tanks for pure, bright & unencumbered fruit flavours. We’ve got a little bit of hippie herbalist energy happening here, like some crazy dried berry health tea made by your weird aunt who’s really into crystals. It’s legitimately soul-cleansing! This wine adores a light dinner (chirashi sushi or summery fresh veg), and pairs just as well with the reflection of the sun in a swimming pool, the scent of chlorine, a zebra-striped swimsuit & your fav pair of Adidas.
