Cuvee Auslese, Hans Tschida, 75cl
If you have never heard of the winery, it's probably because owner and passionate winemaker Hans Tschida shuns the limelight, and prefers to stay at home and tend to his 25 hectares of vineyards in the quaint winemaking town of Illmitz on the right bank of Neusiedlersee. It is a place that seems to have been created to produce great sweet wines, with foggy autumn mornings giving way to dry sunny afternoons, producing perfect conditions for the development of botrytis. The range of wines begins with lightly botrytised Spätlese to the rich and luscious delights of Trockenbeerenauslese (TBA). At the 2010 IWC his hard work and commitment to absolute quality has been fully recognised with 5 Trophies including Dessert Wine of the Year and Sweet Winemaker of the Year.
A blend of 25% Welschriesling, 25% Weissburgunder, 25% Gewürztraminer, 25% Chardonnay.
