Weingut Pittnauer Pitti Red Blend 2018

Pure Austrian Gemulichtkeit ('home-y ness") in an everday Austrian red. Gerhard Pittnauer tends 15 hectares alongside his wife Brigitte to create what they call living wines. All work is done manually from composting to pruning. There is no calendar that drives them. Nothing is rushed: they believe in quality over speed. They taste for perfect ripeness, select the cleanest grapes, and begin the wine in the cellar in response to the conditions of the vintage. 50% Zweigelt, 40% Blaufränkisch, 10% Merlot
