Pittnauer Pitti Zweigelt Blaufrankisch 2015
Pittnauer Pitti is a blend of Blaufränkisch and Zweigelt. It is medium bodied in weight with a plush texture, lovely floral notes, spice and savoury notes. There’s plenty of generous fruit flavour all balanced with a pleasant tannin grip and bright acid balance.
The Wine Front – Biodynamic farmed blaufrankisch and zweigelt from Pittnauer, a trailblazing Austrian producer. A lot to like about recent releases too. Seems to be something in the air, out there on the Hungary border of Austria. That, and Pittnauer’s celebration of lesser-known blaufrankisch, St Laurent and zweigelt, seem to be making waves. This is a complete bargain, by the way. Intense kind of wine but geez it feels good to drink. It’s heady in dark fruit, prune, cinnamon, cola and anise scents. The palate is a punchy wash of dark fruits, kirsch, faint herbs. It’s juicy but has pops of bright acidity through it, making it feel a touch wild, but also, supremely refreshing as a red. Do you like medium weight, spicy-feeling reds with some oomph? Here ya go.
