2015 Tschida Non Tradition Red
Christian Tschida cultivates 10 hectares of old vines in the Neusiedlersee region of Burgenland. His vineyards are planted on sandy gravel, schist, and limestone soils and have been in the family for 4 generations. This area of Burgenland has a unique microclimate due to the moderating influence of the vast Lake Neusiedlersee nearby. 100% Cabernet Franc from 40 year old vines. Grapes are hand harvested, destemmed, and crushed by foot. The juice ferments in barrel with indigenous yeast and no racking. It spends 2 year aging in large Stockinger barrels and is bottled without fining or filtering and no addition of sulfur.
