Should you never have had the pleasure of tasting Christian Tschida's charismatic and evocative wines, this is how you should start. All the work in the vineyard is done by hand, all grapes de-stemmed and crushed by foot. Zero additions whatsoever, no racking, no fining, no filtration. 50/50 cabernet sauvignon and zweigelt blend from gravelly schist soils. Mineral-rich, peppery, with a mostly earthy persona as well as bursts of currants, red berries and some darker ones, all lifted by high acid and the signature frizzante freshness.
