2 in stock
Austria’s flagship variety. A dry and crisp white, with hints of minerality, flavours of melon, lemon and a distinctive spice to the finish – Grüner is known as “the pepper vine” as a consequence.
This wine was one of the first produced by the now-renowned Meinklang. A vanguard member of the natural wine scene, they are innovative and holistic producers in Burgenland, on the border between Hungary and Austria, and we’re delights to work with their wines.
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.
