Tochter 2020 — Grüner Veltliner


A Wine That

we simply cannot stop thinking about. This may be our favourite orange wine discovery of the year, and we don't say that lightly! This is all about the savoury side of Grüner Veltliner - showing it entirely in a new light. Think almond skin, sea salt and a healthy dose of white pepper and clove, and a taste that lingers on your tongue for an eternity. If you're looking for a showstopper, look no further... only a tiny 290 bottles made.

Grüner Veltliner

Where and How?

This comes from a tiny biodynamic vineyard (just seven rows!) on the Nuremberg, planted on limestone soils. it began as a project by Andi, and is now made by the Nittnaus sibling/cousin trio gang. Martin, Andi's brother, says,
“Andi always wants to go out on a limb with Tochter — to play around with new methods. The 2020, for example, had intracellular fermentation for one week (like carbonic fermentation, commonly used in the Beaujolais). We took CO2 gas from one tank and put it in another. It shows the great tannic quality of Grüner, while being super juicy.”
Only 290 bottles were made in 2020. Lydia and Martin laugh, saying,
“It’s a bit crazy to make the wine as the vineyard is tiny, old, with low yields, so the effort is high, but the result is just so unique — which is why we do it.”

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.”
