2011 Gut Oggau Timotheus, Burgenland

( POA, 13%, Dynamic Wines )

Just like the caricature on the label, this is a big broad wine. White peaches, apricot and kiwi flavours are all brilliantly knitted together with a moreish creamy, nutty texture. Some skin contact and maturation in large, old oak barrels has provided body and structure.

It’s different enough to make you sit up and notice, without being remotely scary or “difficult”. Limestone soil.
