Only in a place like the Wachau could the wines of the region's finest producer be purchased freely, for less than huge sums of money. And Franz Hirtzberger, the subject of today's story, is without a doubt one of the top winemakers in all Austria.
Christian Tschida is one of the most uncompromising voices in natural wine. Today we’re offering two rare and delicious examples of Tschida’s handiwork: “Brutal”, a light red made from Pinot Noir, and “Birdscape”, which falls somewhere between a light red and a rosé, and is made from a Blaufrankisch-prominent combination of red and white grapes.
We're offering the greatest that the 2019 Vintage has to offer at the best prices we'll have all year. As usual, for many of these producers' more sought-after wines, this will be your only chance to buy them from us: many of these wines will only be available on DI or will sell out long before they can make it to our shelves.
