Eschenhof Holzer Invader Orange Wine, Austria

Arnold Holzer is a young, innovative winemaker who is having a lot of fun with his wines. This Space Invaders inspired wine is an aromatic, textured style with a full and juicy body. As the Müller-Thurgau grapes are left to macerate on their skins for a few weeks, the wine is cloudy with a real depth of blood orange, candy peel, hints of passion fruit and a gentle tannin. It's an extraordinary wine with a real point of difference, without being too serious about it all.
VITICULTURE + VINIFICATION
The loess in this region creates the natural conditions for the rich wine. The soil drifted here in multiple layers during the last ice age, about 100.000 to 10.000 years ago and covered the sub soil with marine deposits. Due to the valuable mineral composition, the loess soil creates a balanced depository of nutrients. Thanks to it’s small granules and high capillary, the loess soil is able to preserve a lot of water for drying times. The wines that thrive in the loess region are distinguished by a particularly characterful, long lasting and delicate fruit.
