Wine Description:
Christian Tschida Kapitel I, hailing from Burgenland, Austria, is a unique and artisanal wine crafted by producer Christian Tschida. The grapes undergo a meticulous process, with hand harvesting, destemming, and crushing done with bare feet, followed by spontaneous fermentation in old wooden barrels in contact with the skins for approximately two to three weeks. This hands-on approach imparts distinctive characteristics to the wine, capturing the essence of the vintage. After fermentation, Kapitel I ages for about two years in old 500 and 1500-liter wooden barrels, abstaining from clarification, filtration, or the addition of sulfites. This results in a wine that authentically reflects the terroir, showcasing the natural beauty and complexity of the grapes. Read more

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.
