Wine Description:
The Christian Tschida Brutal is a rare and experimental gem, comprising just 10% of his already outstanding portfolio. This Pinot Noir hails from old vines in the prime location of Purbacher Eisner on the western shores of Lake Neusiedl, nestled in the Leithagebirge region. The Pinot vines root in soil dominated by shell limestone. After a selective harvest, the Pinot undergoes spontaneous maceration fermentation, with gentle and brief skin contact. Maturation takes place in neutral wood, emphasizing the wine's uniqueness, and it's bottled without filtration or fining. The name "Brutal" pays homage to the enduring friendship with Bar Brutal in Barcelona – a wine as exceptional as the bar itself. Read more

Wine Expert Note:

In the glass, Tschida's Brutal Pinot Noir displays a beautiful cherry-red hue. Its reductive bouquet exudes notes of red berries, currant leaves, and an earthy mineral essence. On the palate, it is refreshing and exceptionally quaffable. A wine for the discerning drinker, living up to its bold name. The tannins are present but seamlessly integrate into a harmonious experience, avoiding any hindrance to enjoyment. With a bit of aeration and served at a moderate temperature, it transforms into an excellent choice for an evening of spirited discussions. Alternatively, when it comes to food pairing, try it with a veal loin accompanied by chanterelle dumplings. Read more
Taste Flavor
info
Wine sweetness is a measure of the amount of sugar present in a wine. Sweetness in wine can range from bone dry (no sugar present) to lusciously sweet (high sugar content). Sweetness is usually determined by the variety and ripeness of the grapes used, as well as the winemaking process.
Sweetness
info
The alcohol level in wine is a measure of the amount of alcohol present in the beverage. The degree of heat or ‘burn’ at the back of the throat is roughly proportional to the amount of alcohol consumed. It ranges from Very Low to Very High.
Alcohol
info
Wine intensity is a measure of the concentration of flavor and aroma compounds in a wine.The stronger and more noticeable the flavors and aromas are, the higher the intensity of the wine. Intensity in wine can range from neutral (not particularly intense) to pronounced (high intensity).
Intensity
info
Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
