Meinklang Mulatschak Orange
These weird and wacky whites are perfect for those looking for something off the beaten path. These include wines from unique grape varieties and regions, unfiltered / cloudy whites, orange wines and much more. Each bottle is an adventure in itself!
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 from a blend of Welschriesling, Pinot Gris, and Traminer from biodynamically farmed vineyards. The grapes are crushed into stainless steel where they ferment on skins for three days before being pressed off. After some additional time on lees, the wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered with minimal sulphur (25ppm). Mulatschak is a local word meaning a celebration. 11.5% ABV" - Erik Mercier, Juice Imports
