About the Winery
The Hager Matthias winery is located in the small village of Mollands in the Kamptal area of Lower Austria. Matthias took over the 12-hectare land and the family business at an early age. He aims to produce the best quality wine possible and to focus on being in balance with nature. The lands are cultivated according to biodynamic principles and are certified Demeter. Matthias has a vast knowledge about plants and insects, and about keeping the flora and fauna in harmony with the vines. Matthias Hager is one of the most experimental winemakers in the Kamptal region, Austria. He understood early how to work with different soil types from loess to clay. He established different product lines to highlight these differences: the blue one representing fresh, lively wines including Grüner Veltliner and Sauvignon Blanc; and the brown line gravitating towards more earthy, flavourful produce and the red line stands for no sulphites!

Made from grüner veltliner, low alcohol, dry and about as transparently crystalline as it gets for Pét-Nat styled sparkling wine. This a factor of spontaneous fermentation with only natural yeasts hanging out or rather laying low in the bottle to keep things lively and fresh. Does not get much cleaner or pick me up revitalizing in the category and so the price may be steep but the quality and satisfaction run high. Drink 2023-2025. Tasted August 2023.

This intriguing pet-nat has a fairly reserved yet rich nose of yellow plum, caraway, lemon, hay and vague honey. Not a lot of leesy character here. It is medium bodied - weightier than expected - with brisk acidity and effervescence. Flavours are intense, the finish is almost tannic and quite bitter. The length is excellent. Tasted Sept 2023
