Under the title "Entdeckungen vom Weingut" (Discoveries from the Winery), special project wines are vinified and bottled in small quantities at the Jurtschitsch Winery every year since 2007. Each of these wines, of which often only a small barrel is vinified, begins in the mind.
The hand-picked grapes for the Amour Fou come from a vineyard in Langenlois, the Loiserberg. In search of the variety of flavours of the grape variety, combined with the idea of exploring the potential of Grüner Veltliner, they fermented the ripe but not overripe berries on the mash, partly in wooden barrels and partly in a ceramic egg. Every day they tasted until the optimum of complexity, aroma and depth was reached. After two weeks they decided to separate the wine from the mash and to store it on the yeast for 18 months. They do not want to overload their natural wines with tannins, but rather tell a story of their variety, the elegant Kamptal fruit and its origin.
Fermentation with berries has created a timeless Grüner Veltliner with tension and structure on the palate. An idea, a thought, in search of the diversity of taste in wine.
