Non-Tradition 4 Years Barrel-Aged 2016
A Wine That
breaks the rules and rewrites history. The 'lightness of touch' and the level of detail achieved is unlike any other white we ever had from Christian and it is a real masterpiece of what the humble grape Grüner Veltliner is capable of achieving. Think the most intense concentration of yellow fruits mixed with electric energy - a wine full of emotions and perfection.
This bottle is a super rare find that we would like to share with many of you. We are therefore limiting the purchase to ONE BOTTLE ONLY per customer please, thank you for your understanding!

Where and How?
The grapes for the 'Non Tradition' come from a few small plots dotted around the village of Purbach on the Western shores of Neusiedlersee. The close proximity to the forest combined with the high density of limestone make this a cooler expression of Grüner Veltliner. Grapes are pressed straight after harvest and then fermented and aged in large Austrian barrels for 48 months before bottling.
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.
