Brut Rosé NV
A Wine That
rivals some of the best Rosé champagnes out there! Combining Pinot Noir, Zweigelt and Sankt Laurent grapes, this fizz bridges the gap between harmony and spice. Think of a joint music project between the Royal Philharmonics and Daft Punk. Forest berries with a herbal touch of mint - that's what we taste in arguably one of the best sparkling wines we have come across this year!

Where and How?
Jurtschitsch have been making sparkling wines for a very, very long time. Alwin’s Great Grandfather was the first in the family to do this. This tradition was then revived by Stefanie and Alwin back in 2007, after a few trips to Champagne. They selected some vineyards in the Kamptal region which are at a higher elevation. The Blauer Zweigelt, Pinot Noir and St. Laurent in this Brut Rosé have a fresh acidity, which comes as a result of this elevation and cooler temperatures. Made according to the traditional method (like in Champagne).
Alwin and Stefanie Jurtschitsch could have taken over the family business and kept everything the same. There might be the saying if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, but if we all adhered to that or remained sedentary, we'd be stuck drinking traditional wines and agricultural concepts wouldn't have advanced. The current era of Jurtschitsch wines were born from a desire to work differently. From working on a biodynamic weed farm in Australia, to submerging himself in polyculture in the Ecuadorian jungle, Alwin developed an ardent belief in organic farming as a teenager and young adult. Seeing wine as an ever-evolving product of culture, their winemaking techniques have left old traditions in the past, making way for new ones to take their place. Alwin says,
“I see it like a big playground. It's a permanent exchange of me — the human being — the vineyard, and what we’re tasting in the cellar. This should never stop, otherwise you fall asleep in tradition. Always stay tuned and always keep an open mind...”
