Koppitsch 'Rét' 2021

$27.00 Regular price
Unit price

80% Zweigelt, 20% St. Laurent; this light-bodied, vivid red wine from Alexander and Marie Koppitsch is a sign of the brisk red wines possible in general in Burgenland, as opposed to the hefty dark reds that were common in the region only 10 or so years before. Made in a mix of stainless steel and acacia, where the wine matured on lees without fining, filtering, or SO2. Juicy—but not without the imprint of place: sandy and gravelly soils and persistent wind combine to add structure to this lighter red, as well.

Koppitsch Wine

Alexander & Maria Koppitsch

Situated in the small Austrian village of Neusiedl am See, on the northeastern corner of the wide, shallow lake by the same name – the Neusiedl – our friends Maria and Alex Koppitsch live, working vines and producing wines under their eponymous label.

Alex’ family has been in this town for several centuries: he has an ancestor Koppitsch marked in the medieval chronicle of the town in 1523; this ancestor also happened to be the mayor and a winemaker. Imagine living in your hometown after your people had been there for 500 years and inheriting the same craft! – it gives one a sense of the scope of meaning possible for these small growers living in this historical green and reedy locale.
