Most people know and love French Pinots, but very few are aware that Austria produces very fine Pinots as well. Organic wine makers Zuschmann-Schöfmann in the Weinviertel North of Vienna are the masterminds behind these two premium wines.
Pinot Noir Muschelkalk Selektion: Naturally fermentated and unfiltered, aged for 2 years in new and old 500l barriques. Ripe red berries, tertiary notes of forest floor and leather. Silky tannins, elegant and complex, long, multilayered finish. Worth ageing for up to 15 years to develop tertiary flavours further. Enjoy with roast chicken or red meat. Austrian wine magazine Falstaff awarded 92 points to this wine - the Weinviertel is getting a reputation for its own Burgundy style Pinot Noirs!’
Pinot Blanc Selektion: Organic Pinot Blanc selected from the Schricker Bergen vineyard in the aptly named Weinviertel (wine district). Natural fermentation in 500l barrels, malolactic conversion for added creaminess and then left for a whole year on the lees and filled unfiltered. Elegant, aromatic and intense, 93 points in renowned Austrian wine magazine Falstaff.
A special wine for special occasions, perfect with seafood or pork dishes.
