Meinklang Gruner Veltliner
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 made entirely from Grüner Veltliner grown on sandy loam. The grapes are gently pressed into stainless steel where they ferment and age on lees for a short period of time. The wine goes through a loose filter before being bottled with 90ppm total Sulphur. 11.5% ABV
