Everything is comin' up blush! New-kid Cecilia and ultra rare Brutal join timeless fave Winifred in this rosy Gut Oggau 3-pack. 

Blaufränkisch & Zweigelt, Burgenland, Austria | Gut Oggau winemakers Stephanie & Eduard Tscheppe are deeply adored by natural wine lovers the whole world over and deserve every last iota of praise & reverence they receive! The fabric of the wines hinges upon the existence of a fictional family, with every vineyard plot being characterized by one of its members. Sometimes the cleverness of this device can call attention away from how consistently elegant, bewitching & functional these wines truly are, and either way, the Gut Oggau fam is way more than a cutesy gimmick— it’s a progressive and anti-patriarchal language for thinking about wine emotionally & intuitively, which we are obviously way here for. Winifred is definitely the secretly and most effortlessly coolest member of the Gut Oggau fam. Theodora and her hot bro Atanasius are fancy & exhilarating & we love them for it, but Winifred is like a Cat Power/Patti Smith vibes tomboy poet who can repair a car engine with the same degree of natural ease as she can quote entire passages from Finnegan’s Wake. This vintage of Winifred rosé drinks like Winifred went home to crash with her dad Timotheus & stepmom Josephine during the pandemic, setting up shop in her childhood bedroom, which has wall-to-wall dusty rose carpeting and a hidden anarchy sign carved into a secret spot on her wooden bed frame. This is a perfectly balanced rosé; most significantly, the Winifred vineyard is used only to make a rosé, so there is no saignée from a red wine.  Fermentation takes place in used oak barrels; the wine goes through elevage in said barrels for about 8 months, with no batonnage. Winifred is then bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with zero addition of sulfur. Half savoury, salty & deep, like swimming through warm seawater, half energetic, healthy & fresh, like crushing half a bottle of Gatorade Frost after a legendarily transcendent run. Bright cranberry, pink apple, pairs with literally anything, the ultimate wine bar glass pour.

Roesler, Burgenland, Austria | Simply the most hype of all hype wines, ‘Brutal’ wines are zero/zero wines—nothing added, nothing taken away, as in no sulphites, additives, fining or filtration—made by a handful of super casually world-famous natural winemakers. Highly allocated and widely coveted, these experimental cult favourites are peppered in the windows of wine shops around the world and feature some of thee biggest names in natural wine. Gut Oggau’s iteration centers on the grape Roesler, a cross between Zweigelt, Seyve Villard and Blaufränkisch named after the former director of Austria’s oldest viticultural college. The grape itself has tons of colour and tannins but here the juice spends just a few hours on the skins. Not quite a rosé but not quite a red, this is subtle and robust, energetic and highkey explosive, mouthwatering and textural, slightly funky, wildberries frozen on the bush, umami centrifuged out of a tomato, layers upon layers of rich duchess satin and practically radiating with energy. Yes.
