Christian Tschida Birdscape Pink Maceration


Country: Austria

Region: Burgenland

Grapes: Blaufränkisch, Pinot Noir

Vintage: 2021

Christian Tschida has 10 hectares of old vines on the banks of Lake Neusiedler in Burgenland that have been in his family for 4 generations. He grows mainly indigenous Austrian varieties that benefit from the cool lake air and the sandy gravel, schist and limestone soils the area is known for and is renowned for very light extractions that capture the essence of the grapes.

Birdscape is a blend of Blaufränkisch and Pinot Noir, along with local varietals, prepared using what Christian refers to as "Pink Maceration"; a light extraction with only a small amount of skin contact. Bottled without the use of filtration, fining, or additional sulphur. A delicious dark rosé or very light red, with notes of intense red fruits, herbs, wet stone, followed by bright acidity. Best served lightly chilled to allow the wine to bloom.
