The active, chalky soil here in Kremstal, Austria mirrors that of the Cote de Blancs in Champagne, making it the perfect location for sparkling wine production. Winemaker Christoph Hoch learned to make elegant, stable, and gorgeous Pet-Nats from the team at Champagne Tarlant. Even the most loyal Champagne enthusiasts can get behind this Gruner and Zweigelt blend.
This Zweigelt and Saint Laurent blend is perfect - savory, with a nose complex beyond our expectations. Then on the palate it is vibrant, lively, and energized. This wine spends 8 months on the lees, bringing layers of depth and gorgeous aromatics. An absolute delight!
Now–the name Strohmeier needs no introduction in the world of serious natural wine. But, we'll give 'em one anyway. Franz is laser-focused on making unapologetically unique-tasting wines without anything added. His wines are a revelation. They are highly limited as he only makes tiny cuvées each year. His bubbly rosé is particularly charming with unabashed rusticity framing its particularly pretty notes of rose, raspberry, and earth. This is that natty bubbly you've been craving.
