Description

Meinklang not only makes exceptional certified biodynamic and natural wines (wines with as little additives and adjustments as possible) but they are also holistic farmers. Ran by the Michlits family, 55ha of land near the Hungary border hold grasslands and waterways where they farm chicken, sheep, pigs, and biodynamic Angus cattle. These animals play a very important part in the vineyards, as they are Meinklang’s source of fertilizer. The German word for vineyard is ‘wein-garten’ directly translating into ‘wine garden’ and the Michlits stay true to this by creating a true garden of fruits, vegetables, and herbs amongst their vines. Innovating and pioneering winemakers like the Michlit family in Burgenland are an invaluable resource for Austria’s success in winemaking.

This wine is a field-blend of Grüner Veltliner (50%), Welschriesling (40%), and Muskat (10%). The grapes were hand harvested, destemmed, and gently crushed in a pneumatic press. The juice wild-ferments in stainless steel tanks at a low temperature for several weeks. After a short rest period the wine is lightly filtered and protected with 71ppm of SO2 (half the legal limit). The final wine has 7g/l of residual grape sugars and is 11% alcohol – a perfect combination!
