On the nose it is restrained with aromas of ripe apples, stone fruit and dried fruit; extra dry on the palate, slightly astringent. 100% skin fermented for 12 days, no destemming, mainly free run, almost no juice from pressing, bottled at the ideal residual sugar level (vignerons’ secret). No added sulfites. Weingut Fuchs und Hase is an independent winery founded in 2014 by Stefanie and Alwin Jurtschitsch and Martin and Anna Arndorfer producing exclusively pet-nat wines. After learning about pet nat in other countries (none was made in Austria at the time), they wanted to try to make some together. They are currently working with about three hectares total, each family contributing fruit from one and a half hectares, which are all certified organic and in the Kamptal. They chose to work with vineyard sites that are high elevation, near the forest, sites that have natural acidity and lower alcohol, which is how they came up with the winery name, the Fox and Hare, or Fuchs und Hase after the Austrian saying, "where the fox and hare say goodnight" referring to a remote place surrounded by forest.
