Kamptal, Austria
Regular price $42.95per bottle ($257.70per case)

Fresh & Mineral

The Hager's winery consists of 13ha of vineyards in and around the small wine-growing village of Mollands and all of their vineyards are cultivated biodynamically. The strength of this family business is its soil diversity. Loess, clay and different kinds of primary rock (mica schist, gneiss, etc.) can be found in the northern part of Kamptal.

This low-alcohol pet-nat is made from Gruner Veltliner vines planted at 300 meters above sea level. Expect dry, minerality driven bubbles with notes of ripe yellow stone fruit amid hints of pastry. The palate is rounded, lead by a lemony, bright and integrated freshness. The juice is slightly cloudy, a natural pick-me-up!

A great aperitif. Pop and enjoy.

About the Winery

Matthias Hager

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.

91 points - David Lawrason

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
