Time for a modern icon, litterally. the wines from austrian winery gut oggau are legendary across the world, and their striking labels have earned the bottles a place at moma.
each wine represents a particular member of the fictional family. and gut oggau uses the personalities of these members as description for the wines. antanasius is described as a very accommodating person, which is definitely a great way to describe this wine.
the 2014 antanasius from burgenland consists of blaufränkisch and zweigelt. the grapes ferment and age for 12 months in the same big 500-1200 ltr. barrels without any battonage. the wine receives no fining, filtrering or any added so2. 🍷🍷🍷
tasted in zalto bourgogne over 2 days.
in the glass: translucent garnet with purple edges
in the nose: old leather, dried tobacco, sour blackcurrant, raspberries and redcurrant.
on the palate: at first lots of tanins, after 1 hour in the zalto it calmed down and the tanins are more manageable and integrated. well executed balance and a nice brisk acidity on the finish. notes of crunchy and juicy raspberries, sour cherries, blackberries and hint venison.
this is an elegant and delicate entry level wine, it's not a powerhouse. enjoyed this slightly chilled and on it's own. seriously juicy and quaffable, a true gulper 🤤
According to the dictionary, a snack is: “a light meal; food eaten between regular meals.” we call it an essential food group 😆 pictured: five spiced smoked sea bass fillet and sweet and sour spare ribs 😋 #baoziinn#snackideas
