Tasting Notes

TNT is the bomb, made from 40 year old Blaufrankisch vines, the grapes are hand harvested, destemmed, and crushed by foot. The juice ferments in large barrels with indigenous yeast and no racking. It spends 1 year aging in large Stockinger barrels and is bottled without fining or filtering and no addition of sulfur. Bottled in magnum only. Christian Tschida has the great fortune to cultivate 10-hectares of old vines that have been with his family for 4 generations, since the 19th century. The winery is located in the Neusiedler See part of Burgenland, the eastern most point of Austria.
