Wine Description:
Alexander Koppitsch Rét is a distinctive creation by Alexander and Maria Koppitsch, who transitioned from selling grapes to producing wine at their family's 5.5-hectare winery in Burgenland, starting in 2011. Situated in Neusiedl am See, near the shores of Neusidl Lake and the Leitha Mountains, the vineyards boast predominantly limestone soil. Following biodynamic principles inspired by Rudolf Steiner, the Koppitschs meticulously manage every aspect by hand. Rét, a Hungarian term meaning grassland or meadow, encapsulates the historic use of this land for grazing village livestock. The wine is a blend of 80% Rotburger (Zweigelt) and 20% St. Laurent, sourced from Hutweide and Prädium vineyard sites with gravelly soil atop the Wagram-Plateau. The grapes are naturally fermented on skins for six days, pressed, and aged on gross lees for seven months, resulting in an unfiltered, additive-free wine with no added sulfites. This meticulous process produces a unique, terroir-driven wine with a distinct sense of place.

Wine Expert Note:

The Alexander Koppitsch Rét is a unique and intriguing wine that showcases the winemaker's skill and dedication to producing exceptional natural wines. On the nose, the Alexander Koppitsch Rét offers enticing aromas of ripe red fruits, such as cherries and raspberries, accompanied by subtle floral notes and a hint of spice. These aromas continue to evolve and develop as the wine opens up, revealing additional layers of complexity. The palate of this wine is equally impressive, with a medium-bodied structure and a well-balanced acidity. The flavors of red fruits are complemented by earthy undertones and a touch of minerality, adding depth and sophistication to the overall profile. The tannins are smooth and integrated, providing a pleasant texture and a lingering finish. It is a wine that can be enjoyed on its own or paired with a variety of dishes, such as roasted meats, game, or aged cheeses.
