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.It's juicy and vibrant. Dark fruits, red petals with pepper and earth tones fill the palate. Firm tannin creates structure and balance. Delicious.
