24 in stock
A wine to reflect the mood of morning – bright, light, fresh and expansive.
An experimental wine from the magicians at Meinklang – they made a dry, still wine from Saint Laurent, a red variety indigenous to Austria, and aged it for nine months in large concrete eggs. Then they added 10% of whit variety – fresh, fermenting Traminer grape juice.
The end result is a fruity, tangy, and yeasty sparkling wine; light red in colour, with vibrant flavours of cherry, rhubarb, hibiscus and goji berry.
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.
