About: Ewald Tscheppe, the man behind Werlitsch, is putting Styria back on the wine map. He creates wines with incredible energy that can age like the greatest burgundies, wines that are complex but also so easy to drink. His vines for Ex Vero i grow on dense clay soils, which lends the resulting wine a richness not found in many wines from the area. The Ex Vero i is a blend of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, direct pressed and then aged undisturbed on lees in large old Austrian oak foudre for two years. A bright and lively wine, electric on the palate with a pleasant rounded finish.
