Heinrich, Naked Rose, Neusiedlersee-Hügelland, Burgenland, Austria
Gernot and Heike Henrich are life long innovators. Since taking over the family estate in 1985 they have constantly sought to improve and explore. Now farming biodynamically, which they see as being right for the planet and better for the wines, they were among the first to move to focus on quality and champion local grape varieties.
Naked wines are made with minimal intervention, nothing to hide behind.
After hand-picking the grapes are kept partial whole-bunch, crushed and left on skins for a few hours maceration. Fermentation is with indigenous yeast, and is allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged for five months on lees in amphorae, before bottling without filtration and with minimal sulphur.Bright red berries, pure fruit, good concentration and a long dry finish.
