About

About The Wine

The Pittnauer Pitti Blend brings together Zweigelt, a grape created in 1922 in Austria, with its parent Blaufrankisch, and a dash of Merlot, in this rich and satisfying wine.

The Pitti is described by the Pittnauers as 'carefree, inviting, fresh and fruity, juicy and dynamic', and we can't help but agree. While it looks dark and brooding in colour, its fruit notes are vibrant and fresh, with blackberry, smoke and liquorice underscored by some nice tannin grip.

The combination of Zweigelt and Blaufrankisch give the wine its fruitiness and spice, with the Merlot giving it some palate weight. A lovely wine at a lovely price.

About Pittnauer

Gerhard and Brigitte Pittnauer's wines are simply some of the best coming out of the Burgenland region, at the eastern edge of Austria, highlighting the beauty of local varieties Blaufrankisch, St-Laurent and Zweigelt, as well as excellent Pinot Noir.

Their red wines of brightness and insane drinkability have seen him garner many accolades in recent times, including 2014 Winemaker of the Year by Falstaff magazine, the top winemaker award in Austria.

Additional Info

From the Producer

All vineyards are cultivated either organically or biodynamically – not all by ourselves, but all according to our principles. The picking dates, vinification of the different batches, élevage and assemblage is entirely our responsibility. In short, this means that crisp but perfectly ripe grapes are harvested relatively early and then fermented spontaneously, the maceration is not too long and the maturation takes place in large, used wooden barrels.

Pitti is carefree, inviting, fresh and fruity, juicy and dynamic. Red berries, cherries and a fine spice characterise the aroma profile. The texture is juicy and compact, the acidity and tannin are in balance and give the Pitti temperament, balance and energy al the way through. It also uplifting on the finish with good fruit and vitality.

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you.
