2017 Christian Tschida Kapital I Cabernet Franc
Christian Tschida cultivates 10 hectares of old vines in the Neusiedlersee region of Burgenland. His vineyards are planted on sandy gravel, schist, and limestone soils and have been in the family for 4 generations. This area of Burgenland has a unique microclimate due to the moderating influence of the vast Lake Neusiedlersee nearby.
This 2017 Kapital I is 100% Cabernet Franc planted on the gravelly schist soils east of Lake Neusiedlersee. The grapes spend 8 weeks on skins before being wild fermented in open wooden vats. The wine is then aged for a minimum of 18 months in large oak barrels before being bottled without fining or filtration.
No added sulphur.
