Pittnauer Pitti Rose Burgenland Austria Case 12 x 750ml
Pittnauer Pitti Rose Burgenland Austria
The king's crown has slipped. Which is not really surprising. After all, Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt, Merlot and Cabernet have come together to form a deeply democratic pink-red cuvée, based on the motto “Rosé for everyone”. The principle of égalité is not followed literally, but the lion's share is granted to the Blaufränkisch and Zweigelt grapes - but no revolution is to be proclaimed either.
Rather, the “König” is about a rosé that can be drunk on any occasion and at any time of the day or night, that is inviting and stimulating, ensures a good mood, combines fluidity with substance and is welcome on the terrace, while picnicking and at business dinners.
To do this, we handpicked organically grown grapes from different vineyards on the right bank of Lake Neusiedl, pressed them after a few hours of maceration, fermented them spontaneously and then matured them in steel tanks for a few months.
The result is a wine that is waiting to be drunk outdoors and with friends. Under the last rays of sunshine of the day, by the lake or in the mountains or - if everything goes well - by the sea. It is light as a feather, smells of strawberries and roses, is crystal clear, slightly spicy, juicy and invigorating and flows fresh, fruity and without dangling over the palate. - Gerhard Pittnaue
About The Winery
High on the hills of Austria there is more than just a lonely goatherd - there is also a fantastic winery, considered one of the country's best. Pittnauer has a long winemaking tradition in the region, and in 2006 moved to more biodynamic practices. The results are delicious, environmentally friendly wines with years of experience behind them.
Now prepare yourself for some varieties you've probably never heard of - Pittnauer's Pitti Red Blend is made from Blaufrankisch and Zweigelt grapes. These varieties shine brightest in the Austrian climate, where they come together to make a stunningly delicious, full bodied wine reminiscent of spicy Shiraz.
Don't be surprised if you hear a lot more about Pittnauer and Austrian wines in the future. Australians have been moving towards these interesting varieties in droves, and, like Conchita and Arnold Schwarzenegger, Austrians are only getting more popular.
