The estate is run by Eduard Tscheppe and his wife Stephanie, daughter of a 2 Michelin star restaurant owner. It is a certified biodynamic estate with each wine coming from a single plot of vines with different terroirs showing different expressions in the wine. The individual personalities of the wine are expressed in the faces on the labels created by Jung von Matt (German designer) and brought together in the Gut Oggau family tree. A unique and fascinating way of describing the wines, they taste every bit as intriguing as the labels suggest.
Walnut Block - Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

sprays and fertilizers. Depth of flavour and mouthfeel has improved as the vines become more self-sufficient and naturally balanced.

This Sauvignon Blanc comes from some of the best vines in their single block, next to a Walnut tree, as well as some of their younger and fresher vines, to give a bright and expressive wine suitable for all occasions.
Domaine Chante Cigale - Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Majestic are right when they say that to buy a single row of vines in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, you'll pretty much need to re-mortgage your house. However, owner and winemaker of renowned Domaine Cristia, has created a perfect organic blend - without the typical price tag. It's blended from three different terroirs within the region: sand, limestone and the famous 'galets roulés' pebbles. It's full of spice and raspberry and redcurrant fruit. And its firm structure makes it perfect with Mediterranean-style foods, like rustic vegetable dishes.
Nero Oro - Riserva
