Reviews of purchase Christian Tschida, "Himmel auf Erden" Weiss, 2016
Wine of a rich yellow color.
The wine has a unique, paradoxical taste. At first glance, he is feminine and graceful, with soft peach and nutty notes. But it quickly becomes clear that the wine has a powerful, concentrated core, which, along with a pleasant acidity, provides balance and firmness. The last to leave the aftertaste are the shades of lemon, beeswax, grapefruit and white flowers.
The delicate aroma of wine envelops notes of a peach and flowers, which are echoed in the background by shades of minerals.
The wine is served with langoustines, shrimps and complex fish dishes.
Christian Chita is a man of extremes who is trying to push the standard boundaries to create wines that affect taste buds. The name "Himmel Auf Erden" ("Heaven on Earth") was borrowed from the painting of the famous Austrian artist Alfred Hrdlicka, whose fragment is placed on the label. The atmosphere of carefree enjoyment served as a source of inspiration for the creation of wine.
Cuvée sorts of Sciorebe and Pinot Blanc from old vines were obtained after pressing with their feet. After the spontaneous fermentation, the wine ripened in large oak barrels within a year, and then it was bottled without filtration and adding sulfur. White wine Christian Tschida, "Himmel auf Erden" - a unique, paradoxical and highly unusual.
Christian Chita is called the "enfant terrible" of Burgenland. Its principle of winemaking - "nature will take care of itself." No - strict order, fixed rules and dogmas. In the vineyard, grapes get maximum character and grace, and in the basement of the wine are left to themselves, so they gain their internal balance.
His 10 hectares of land Christian inherited and became the representative of the 4th generation of the Chita family winemakers. Burgenland is famous for its red and sweet wines. A great influence on them is due to the proximity of the Neusiedler Lake and limestone-sandy soils. Christian himself says that the key to the success of his wines is a unique press installation that looks like an old screw press. It exerts a very gentle pressure on the grapes, comparable to manual pressure. So only the best juice is extracted from the grapes. Cake and remaining juice is used as a fertilizer for vines. Its fermentation tanks are on the street in the shade of trees. After fermentation, the wines are placed in drums for aging. And then there is no time for haste. Christian - a supporter of long aging. Some of his wines are in barrels for about 5 years. They are manually bottled to preserve freshness and leave a little residual carbon dioxide as a natural preservative for better storage.
