Grape Variety: Welschriesling, Bakator, Szerémi Zöld, Ezerjó
Producer: Oszkar Maurer
Region: Szerémség, Serbia
Wild Scale: 3/5
Vegan friendly wine
Winemaking: Organic white grapes were harvested by hand and fermented with indigenous yeast after a period of skin contact. Bottled with no fining or filtration and just a touch of sulphur.
This Wine: A natural, skin contact wine made from a blend of local grape varieties (very impressed if you know anything beyond Welschriesling). It's easy-drinking but still has bucket loads of fresh fruit character and a refreshing mineral finish. Very clean.
Notes on the Winemaker: Oskar Maurer produces fun and approachable wines made from local grape varieties that you have probably never heard of. They are also amazingly well priced which is always nice. His vineyards are close to the river Danube, not far from the border with Croatia.
