Brutal — Pinot Noir 2020

£39.00

A Wine That

unlike it's previous vintages shows more structure and depth. Christian's talent for balanced red wines once again shows through here. Think Pinot Noir with lifted red fruit but dark enough to convince every serious francophile drinker that this belongs to the very best category of Pinot Noir.

Pinot Noir

Where and How?

This wine was grown on 3 separate parcels of Pinot Noir just outside of Purbach, Burgenland. The soils are characterised by the 'Leithaberg' hills — mainly shell limestone, quartz and schist towards the upper hillside. Christian picks his grapes in small buckets very early in the morning to retain freshness in the grapes until they arrive in the winery. There, the fruit is macerated and subsequently pressed with his incredible vertical basket press that applies a 'hand shake' type pressure, only extracting the most delicate parts of the juice. His wines are then aged in large wooden casks usually starting with 1000L all the way to 3000L+ barrels. After a minimum of 10 months the wines are bottled without filtration and little to none addition of SO2.

The Winemaker: Christian Tschida

Christian Tschida is one of a kind. He might be renowned as one of the world's most cult natural winemakers, but when it comes down to it, he'd prefer not to talk about wine at all — rather art. For that's how to describe Christian's wines — these are playful-yet-serious interpretations of what Mother Nature gives him. His grapes are like watercolour, acrylic and graffiti interchanged from year to year.
