"Cherry, wild herbs, red fruits and hints of oak coming through, this Blaufrankisch and St Laurent blend is just smooth and sexy. The Buble of wine."

Andreas Gsellmann’s hands are all over these remarkable Burgenland wines - quite literally, with his own hands depicted on his labels, their gestures referring to key elements of his work. This young grower, whose family has made wine since 1800, farms 21 hectares of vineyards in Gols (where wine has been made for two thousand years, and was part of Hungary till 1921) in the Pannonian basin with its hot, dry summers and lengthy ripening season. The nearby Lake Neusiedl moderating the climate throughout the year, and strong winds aerating the vineyards. The gravelly soils were created from deposits from the receding Pannonian sea, and offer excellent drainage. Since 2010, Andreas has farmed biodynamically and is a member of Respekt, a group of “young, dynamic and non-dogmatic” winemakers in Austria, Germany and Hungary.
