Description

Meinklang Österreich "Abend" Edition 1

Meinklang Österreich "Abend" Edition 1 is a fresh and fruity Austrian red wine. Muted rich purple colour. Opens with a complex nose of black cherries, black plum jam, creme de cassis, violets, liquorice and clove. The aromas follow through to the intense and firm palate, which also offers a stony and salty minerality.

 

Blend of 80% Saint Laurent (2016 vintage) and 20% Blaufränkisch (2018 vintage). The vines grow freely (no pruning) in mineral-rich volcanic soils in Meinklang's certified biodynamic vineyards. The vineyards are located in Pamhagen, Austria. Pamhagen is in the middle of the (World Heritage Site) National Park Neusiedlersee, on the Eastern side of the Neusiedlersee Lake, bordering directly on the Hungarian lowlands. The vineyards are fertilised with compost produced on the farm using sheep, cow and horse manure, pomace, green waste and occasionally also rock dust.

The 2018 Blaufränkisch goes through whole cluster with 45 days of maceration. Spontaneous fermentation using low-intervention methods. The wine ages for 2.5 years in concrete eggs. No fining or filtering before bottling.
