Pittnauer Pitt Pet Nat 2017 - Burgenland, Austria


The Story

There is a simple and honest feeling in the wine and spirit of Gerhard Pittnauer which hails from his generosity and humility. Given the reins of his vineyard in the mid-1980’s after the unexpected death of his father, Gerhard, then 18 years old, had to train himself to make wine in the midst of scandal and chaos in the Austrian wine market. He chose to become a student of the broader wine world, and, in realizing the exceptionality of the land he farmed and of the indigenous grapes of the region, allowed himself to experiment with some missteps until he found his thesis.

M+Q Notes

From vines grown on soils composed of sand, loam and chalk with organic treatments. The grapes were hand-harvested at the end of August in the cool morning hours. 100% whole bunch pressing without the addition of sulfur, then racked into stainless steel using natural indigenous yeasts. Spontaneous Fermentation in stainless steel with final fermentation in the bottle. Disgorgement is done by hand, topped off with the same wine and re-capped. No sulfur added at any point.
