Meeting on a trip to Austria, the idea quickly arose to establish a natural wine together with Heinrich Hartl and thus further merge the worlds of digital app and analog gastronomy. After half a year of rehearsals and development, the Heinrich Hartl x Raaago natural wine is finally available.
The natural wine, of which only 800 bottles of the 2020 vintage Rotgipfler and 400 of the 2020 Zierfandler exist, were bottled exclusively for Raaago. A real rarity and a special treasure of this autochthonous white wine variety, which today is also found almost only in this area in Austria.
The Rotgipfler, slightly cloudy and golden yellow in color. With a complex aroma, a mix of ripe yellow apples, freshly baked brioche, pear compote, followed by spicy notes of vanilla, white pepper and orange zest. Expressive palate with particular spice, apple chutney, elegant fresh acid structure. Again brioche notes, juicy puree of ripe yellow apples, reminiscent of candied oranges in panettone. In addition, slightly salty in the long finish.
And the Zierfandler is grown from 37-year-old vines, planted by Heinrich Hartl III, the Zierfandler offers a bright clear orange yellow. The spicy note together with a hint of orange marmalade gives the mineral white wine a good freshness. It has gentle salt, is smoky and you can taste candied tangerine zest.
