Meinklang Graupert Natural Osterreich 2018
Yummy and funky Grauburgunder given 2 weeks of skin contact. Also called Pinot Gris/Grigio, this is an Austrian twist on the Italian ramato, or copper wine. A touch of trapped CO2 in the bottle, naturally cloudy from there being no filtering or fining. No additives used, not even sulfites are added. The grapes are all farmed biodynamically, no manufactured pesticides are sprayed on these vines.
"Meinklang is an original, family-run mixed farm, set in the middle of the World Heritage Site of the National Park Neusiedlersee, on the Eastern side of the Neusiedlersee Lake, bordering directly on the Hungarian lowlands, where life’s diversity and complexity are celebrated.
This farm functions much like an organism, relying not only on the people but also on the local herd of cows which contributes in an essential way with their natural and invaluable fertilizer.
The farm’s diversity is enriched by ancient grains such as spelt, farro, and einkorn wheat, as well as the fruit orchards and vegetable gardens, meadows of wild herbs and flowers, and the elegant charm of the grapevines." - Zev Rovine
