Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt blend.
The attractive bouquet shows dark blackberry, nuances of tobacco and a bit of liquorice. The palate has tight tannins with black berries. It's complex with fresh acid structure and potential to develop nicely in the medium term.
It's more than 20 years since Gerhard and Brigitte Pittnauer took over the winery in Gols near Lake Neusiedl in Burgenland, bordering Hungary at the eastern edge of Austria. Over that time they've pushed the boundaries of Austrian red winemaking, in particular with St Laurent and Zweigelt. In 2001 the construction of the fittingly striking production hall in the middle of the vineyards allowed for a quantum jump in quality and quantity.
These wines are elegant, structured, complex and beautifully drinkable. Everything -from the Pitti blend, through the vivid addition-free wines and right up to the devastatingly good single vineyards - will pretty much tell you the same thing: This is one of the most forward-thinking, creative and gifted winemakers you’ll find in all of Europe.
