Low intervention winemaking – and vineyard management! The vines haven’t been pruned for several years, and the resulting fruit is smaller in size but richer in flavour. The result is a wine both light and deep, with some brambly fruit flavour and a tangy edge – note of hibiscus, pomegranate, balsamic. Some hints of almond and a hint of salami, a flavour that will develop as the wine ages in bottle.
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.
