Meinklang Foam Rot, 2019
Out of stock
Red Pet Nat – an unfiltered, old school, lightly sparkling wine, where the fermentation completes inside the bottle, leaving you with a fresh, fruity and vibrant wine.
Made from 80% Gamaret (a crossing of Gamay and Reichensteiner) and 20% Blaufränkisch, this is deep in colour and juicy in flavour profile, with fruity flavours of blackcurrant, blueberry, raspberry.
12% in alcohol, and with high acidity, it has enough weight and structure to cut through rich food (in the style of a good Lambrusco) – Parmesan, preserved meats, olive oil. It’s also an informal and fun fizz to share with friends in the garden, in the afternoon.
We’re delighted to work with Meinklang, A vanguard member of the natural wine scene, they are innovative and holistic producers in Burgenland, on the border between Hungary and Austria.
Their 70 hectares of vines are part of a large mixed farm, on which they keep Angus cattle, ensuring a steady supply of manure for making biodynamic preparations, and ensuring a ‘closed loop’ system of agriculture, where the abundant fertility of the site in constantly renewed by its own nitrogen cycle, rather than relying on adding nitrogen and other chemical inputs. This ensures their wines are ultimate expressions of their land.
