Description

Meinklang Österreich "Tag" Edition 2

Meinklang Österreich "Tag" Edition 2 has the energy of a summer afternoon. Pure, bright and electrifying with its citrusy, hay and meadow flower nose. The palate has a perky acidity, tannic grip and long-lasting persistence. Clear hit of grapefruit in the mouth that preludes a yellow-fleshed fruit and creamy texture, mandarin rose petals and a hint of black pepper. Bright yet delicate.

 

Fun Fact: Tag Edition 2 is the second in a line composed of four wines. The names of each recalls the four periods of the day and symbols of the four seasons are found on the colourful, artistic and eye catching labels.

100% Grüner Veltliner. The vines have an average age of 35 years and grow in sandy loam and clay soils. Meinklang's certified organic and biodynamic 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.

Whole cluster fermentation in small open containers. Ages in concrete eggs
