Organic – indigenous blends – putting Austria on the map
Gerhard Pittnauer is undoubtedly one of the stars of the Austrian winemaking scene, producing a host powerful reds which showcase the quality of Austria’s indigenous grape varieties.
His base in the town of Gols is located in the Burgenland region, famed for the amount of sunlight it receives each year. As a result, Gerhard is able to fashion supple, modern wines that all display his signature, silky soft tannins.
His ‘Velvet’ is a form of introduction to Austrian reds. A blend of Zweigelt and Blaufränkisch, it is soft and spicy with those trademark ‘velvety’ tannins.
Medium ruby with violet reflections, delicate hint of blackberry. Fine Balsamic Dressing, multi-faceted bouquet. Complex, fresh berries, elegant texture, dried plums on the palate. Ripe cherries on the finish.
