The Maskerade cuvees are field blends of vineyards that Eduard & Stephanie have recently taken over. From the beginning they have instilled their principles and approach to viticulture working biodynamically & as hands off as possible. The vineyards are still learning & developing though. The vineyards are yet to fully develop & therefore are holding back a tiny bit of their beautiful personality and character in the wine. Their true self is still hidden to the winemakers so they are not quite sure exactly who the person behind the mask is yet.
Only after they have revealed themselves fully will they become part of the Gut Oggau family tree. So, the Maskerade wines capture a wonderful ephemeral moment. A snapshot in time never to be experienced the same way again.
This 1 litre of Maskerade Rose is a field blend from 2020 vintage giving lovely raspberry & strawberry fruit on the palate with a savoury note the finish.
