Ewald Tscheppe makes some of the most distinctive and expressive white wines in Austria. He biodynamically farms 8 hectares of vines in the southern part of Styria - a region famous for its ‘opok’ (limestone rich clay) soils. The winemaking culture in this mountainous part of Austria can be traced all the way back to Roman times, and the region has some of the oldest Sauvignon Blanc plantings outside of France. Ewald took over the family winery in 2005, and works the 8 hectares of vines biodynamically.
Half Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc from the barren and steepest location like the Ex Vero III. Ripe pineapple and extremely ripe passion fruit and apricot in the mouth with raisins and acacia honey. The most intense wine from Werlitsch. Everything engaging in the overwhelming complexity.
