Sepp and Maria Muster took over their 10 hectare estate in Schlossberg near the small town of Leutschach in Styria (called Steiermark) from their parents Theresa and Rudolf Muster. The oldest document records of the estate date back to 1727 whereas the layout plans of the vineyards date back to 1787. We are in rolling countryside, plenty of forest, right on the border of Slovenia.
Much like a red wine with tannin and tension, this orange wine has notes of cider, dried lemon and savoury herbs. Aptly named "Erde" meaning earth this wine is eccentric but ideally suited for those fans of orange wines and extremely tannic white wines.
