Christian Tschida Pinot Noir Brutal
Layers of rustic bramble fruit and intense minerality with a level of finesse that only Christian can bring. A real treat, extremely refined and classic. Very refreshing body and a great supporting acidity. Light but complex - just pure fun.
The vines (100% Pinot Noir) for this wine are 40 years old and hand-harvested before being de-stemmed and crushed by foot. The juice ferments in two large barrels with indigenous yeast and no racking. It spends one year ageing in a barrel and is bottled without fining or filtering and no addition of sulphur.
Christian cultivates 10 hectares of old vines in the Neusiedlersee region. This area of Burgenland has a unique microclimate due to the moderating influence of the huge lake Neusiedl. Christian has a very hands-off approach in his vineyards, preferring to let nature take its course. His wild-looking parcels are instantly recognisable – overgrown with cover crops that both preserve biodiversity in the vineyards and force the vines to bury their roots deep into the soils in search of nutrients.
