Andreas Tscheppe is a reknowned natural winemaker in the region of Styria (also known as Steiermark), south-east Austria, bordering Slovenia. This area is famous for it's white wines, particularly Sauvignon Blanc which is stipulated to be the main grape for use in top quality wines. The vineyard, like many in the area, has steep terraces and vines that are planted on hill faces which are teeming with local wildlife and biodiversity. This wildlife has even become the focus of the labelling, reflecting the importance of thoughtful and hollistic winemaking.
The Stagbeetle is an unusual blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, made with extended skin contact creating an amber wine. This is both dense in flavour whilst being zippy and lean, blending the best of both worlds. This is definitely a pronounced and intensely flavoured wine, requiring some decanting ideally prior to drinking. It has all the hallmarks of the best orange wines from Slovenia or North Italy - an almost herbal flavour with a strong tannic structure and developed notes of dried apricot, fleshy yellow plum and white peach.
