Manila 2020 — Blaufränkisch
A Wine That
is all about the juicy side of Blaufränkisch — with those hallmark blackcurrant and white pepper flavours — but on the lighter side of the spectrum. Delicious juice, but with a serious undertone, and a true foodie's wine. This will pair with pretty much every dish conceivable — if you're planning a dinner party, this is your go-to!

Where and How?
This comes from biodynamically farmed vineyards in Jois, the Burgenland, Austria.
The wine was fermented with half whole bunches, half destemmed fruit, in amphora, with very gentle punchdowns and a short maceration period of ten days: a balanced insight into the lighter side of the variety.
The Winemaker: Nittnaus
The Nittnaus family of Burgenland, Austria, is family of renegades — but respectful renegades. They might have thrown the rulebooks out of the window, but it hasn’t just been for the sake of doing so, but rather to see if they could improve the way the rulebook had been written in the first place. The sons of Anita and Hans Nittnaus, Martin and Andi, are joined by their cousin, Lydia, in their quest to take their parents’ work one step further. Together, this trio is carving their own path, adding another dimension to the work already achieved by their family. And in doing so, it’s like they’ve forged a new genre for their region — they are the punk trio to their family’s rock band.
“We work with well-established grape varieties — Grüner Veltliner and Blaufränkisch — but give them a new perspective through our vision. Manila is about subversion, and the beauty of subversion.”
