From twelve vineyards around the town of Jois, all either kalk (chalk) or schiefer (slate) soils. Charming bright mineral red, sort of akin to a nice simple cru Beaujolais with bright red fruits and a crisp finish. Chill slightly in warm weather if you're feeling sufficiently outré. L&S (Feb 2019)

Nittnaus

Hans Nittnaus was introduced to us by Bert Salomon, and we love his red wines. No attempt here to make international wines from foreign grape varieties, which is not what we were looking for from Austria. These are indigenous wines reflecting the 'terroir' of the region. He is undoubtedly a supremely fine red wine maker, and is now following biodynamic practices which will lead to official certification from the 2007 vintage.

This wine isn't currently part of a mixed case, but you can always browse our full selection of mixed cases here.
