From organically farmed Pinot Noir on gneiss-based soils, on the windswept plateaus between Langenlois and Schiltern. The whole bunches of Pinot Noir were crushed by foot to release the juice, after which they were fermented for 14 days. The wine was aged in old 300-500L barrels, and bottled unfined and unfiltered after 12 months with a small touch of sulphur. Crunchy, bright and refreshing Pinot.

Notes on the producer

Alwin and Stefanie’s winery dates back to the 16th century, making it one of Austria’s oldest estates. The Jurtschitsch family bought the property in 1868 and in 2010 Alwin and his wife Stefanie took over and have taken the winery from strength to strength ever since. Their first step was to convert to organic farming and place sustainability and site expression at the heart of their winemaking practice. They also started to cut down on the number of hectares they cultivate so they could dedicate their time to their top vineyards. Alwin and Stefanie produce some of the most highly regarded single vineyard Rieslings and Grüner Veltliners in the Kamptal. They also produce some stellar Champagne Method sparkling wines from local varieties.
