Christian Tschida 'Brutal' 2019
Regular price $48.00
Producer: Christian Tschida
Varietal: Pinot Noir
- All of our wine selections are fermented spontaneously.
- Other Information: Christian Tschida has the great fortune to cultivate 10-hectares of old vines that have been with his family for 4 generations, since the 19th century. The winery is located in the Neusiedler See part of Burgenland, the eastern most point of Austria. Tschida is also a member of the Brutal wine corporation, a loose conglomeration of natural winemakers who challenge each other to produce 'brutal' wine, meaning the vinification must be extreme--the wine can only be made in one barrel and have no added sulphur. This 'Brutal' is made with 100% hand harvested Pinot Noir grapes that are destemmed and crushed by foot. The juice ferments in 2 large barrels with indigenous yeast with no racking. It spends 1 year aging in barrels and is bottled without fining, filtering, or added sulphites.
