A refreshing summery Pinot Noir with red berries and morello cherries on the nose and a smooth finish. The grapes are grown on the slopes of the Leitha Mountains, where high sunshine hours, cool nights and shelter from the Leithaberg forests make the perfect microclimate to ripen the grapes whilst maintaining good acidity. Fermentation in stainless steel preserves the fresh red berry flavours, a year maturing in oak gives balance and softness to the finish.

About Birgit Braunstein

We first met Birgit Braunstein in a tasting in Austria, and were instantly taken by the purity and frankness of her wines. Birgit's family has been growing vines next to Lake Neusiedl for 400 years.

The schist, shell limestone and quartz of the Leitha Mountains, and the unique microclimate near Lake Neusiedl give their wines a natural ripeness and terrior-specific minerality. The crisp, cool night air on the Leitha Mountain slopes adds finesse and vitality. She works organically and biodynamically across a wide range of terroirs, and her wines reflect this natural balance.
