Burgenland / Austria
A magnificent Syrah from 60 year old vines on chalky limestone on the Western shores of Lake Neusiedlersee. Thanks to the long maceration and a very gentle pressing, this Syrah is cool, pretty and light on its feet. However, it's the bit of spice and a savoury, smokey finish that awakens the palate and keeps us coming back for more.

Tschida's wines are some of the most lightly-handled and evocative out of all of Central Europe's new generation of natural winemakers. Tschida is always pushing his farming and vineyards to greater and greater clarity and rigor; his harvests, pressing, and fermentation processes even more so, even if this means being intensely "hands-off."
