Pittnauer Pittnauski Burgenland Austria

The Pittnauski is a very personal wine to Gerhard Pittnauer, one that he has longed to create. Using his decades of knowledge and experience, Gerhard has created a wine that isn’t driven by tannin and alcohol but subtlety, all the while expressive and complex. Fruit for the blend comes from Gerhard and Brigitte's best vineyards Rosenberg (sandy), Altenberg (clay) and Ungerberg (loam), located in Austria's northern Burgenland. It's composed of Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt and St. Laurent (roughly 40:40:20). Separately fermented and vinified, the wines are aged individually in barrel. Once combined the blend is bottled without filtration.
The Pittnauer Pittnauski is juicy and vibrant. Dark fruits, red petals with pepper and earth tones fill the palate. Firm tannin creates structure and balance. Delicious.

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.

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.
