From: Wagram, Großriedenthal, Austria
Blend: Muller Thurgau
Taste: Sparkling fruit essence characterized by its orange wine profile. Flavors of tart stone fruits, lemon peel, and a subtle clay minerality and light spice complement aromas of mandarin, passion fruit, and tropical notes. This wine presents a delightful entry into the world of orange wines, marked by gentle tannins and a rich palate.
Pairing: It complements aromatic dishes and is particularly well-suited to roast pork. The wine's fruity bouquet, pleasant acidity, and soft tannins make it an excellent match for homemade fried chicken with a lightly spiced crust or braised pork tenderloin. Its simplicity and distinct flavors also make it an ideal pairing for the complexity of Indian cuisine, balancing the intense flavors and spices without overwhelming the palate. With that being said, this wine would be fantastic with the milder, yet robust Jamaican curry varieties like this recipe.

About: Arnold Holzer, born in 1987, represents the fifth generation of a family steeped in the tradition of viticulture. Taking the reins of the family winery in 2010, with help from his brothers, Arnold's youthful experiences in the vineyards laid the foundation for his profound understanding of wine creation. His approach intertwines the handed-down knowledge of generations with a modern, open-minded perspective, driving the evolution of the estate.
The Eschenhof Holzer winery, nestled in Großriedenthal within the Wagram wine region, benefits from the unique natural surroundings. The winery's name, Eschenhof, pays homage to the oak trees gracing its farmyard and the historic cellar where their red wines age. This region, known for its rich loess soil, contributes significantly to the distinctive character of the wines produced here. Formed over millennia, this soil provides a nutrient-rich environment with excellent water retention capabilities, fostering the growth of deeply rooted grapevines that thrive in the Pannonian climate.
The vineyard, exclusively sourcing grapes from Wagram, boasts hilly terrain with a southeastern to southwestern orientation, between 200 and 300 meters above sea level. The combination of loess and gravel soil and a continental climate create the perfect setting for cultivating the Müller-Thurgau varietal. This grape, a hybrid of Riesling and Madeleine Royale, was developed by Dr. Herman Müller in 1882. The wine's production process is marked by spontaneous fermentation, malolactic fermentation, and an unfiltered approach. Maturation occurs in steel tanks over 7 to 8 months, preserving the wine's unique characteristics.
A notable aspect of the Invaders.Exe wine is its integration with modern technology. The winery has delved into augmented reality, offering an interactive experience with its "Taste Invasion" app through its wine label. This innovative approach allows wine enthusiasts to engage with the brand through entertainment and technology.
