ABOUT THE PRODUCER
Pittnauer Perfect Day is an orange wine made from Chardonnay, Muscat, Gruner Veltliner, and Traminer. An aromatic wine with spice and tannins.
From the winery: The vines are planted in heavy clay soils of the Altenberg (Gols) vineyard, are hand-harvested in September, and undergo intensive sorting. Spontaneous fermentation with natural yeasts under temperature control and then aged in barrique for 8 months.
For the Gruner Veltliner 95% whole berries were used and 5% bunches and then fermented for ten days in open vats, while the Muscat Ottonel and Traminer underwent the same process but with reduced time on the skins. The Chardonnay is immediately pressed to maintain a crisp texture and freshness with mineral elements. Each varietal was matured separately in barrique for half a year and then merged just before bottling.
