“Grease for the soul.”
Oszkár Maurer, Serbian winemaker extraordinaire, describes this extended skin contact wine as “grease and motor oil for the soul.” This single varietal wine is composed of Olaszrizling - Welschriesling - made from a parcel that was his great-grandmother’s dowry. The wine spent 6 days on its skins, followed by an additional 12 months in barrel. A wine that tastes like tropical punch made by forest witches.
- The Maurer family has been crafting wine on the banks of the Blue Danube for four generations now, with Oszkár Maurer currently leading the charge.
- Oszkár’s mission is to highlight indigenous Serbian varietals, making the wines as pure and natural as possible with minimal additions of added sulfur.
- Welschriesling is a white wine grape variety grown in central and eastern Europe, known for making high-acid wines.
