Johannes Zillinger Revolution White Solera NV
Revolution is the more experimental side of Johannes’ winemaking. This is blend of 3 different grape varietals that all have different paths in their making. Chardonnay is fermented in amphora. Towards the end of this Scheurebe (a super obscure German variety) is added. The final puzzle piece is Riesling from multiple vintages (a Solera system of wines from 2013, 2014 and 2015). Despite sounding random and disparate, the finished wine is beautifully textured, with moreish flavours of apricot, sweet spices finishing with zesty freshness.
Organic winegrowing was instilled in Johannes Zillinger from an early age. In fact, his father Hans has been considered a pioneer of organic viticulture in Austria from the 1980’s. In 2013 Johannes took over the reins of his family’s estate in Weinviertel, Lower Austria. Johannes continues his fathers ideals and has even gone one step further, gaining biodynamic certification for the family estate.
