Description

Meinklang Österreich "Weißer Mulatschak" 2021

Meinklang Österreich "Weißer Mulatschak" is a super fun wine that stands between being a white or orange wine. Naturally hazy appearance. Light aromas of peach, rhubarb and grapefruit fill the nose. Juicy and mouth-watering, the palate has a tannic texture thanks to skin contact and a soft yeastiness. Apricot, golden berry and orange blossom flavours are supported by a lovely salty minerality.

 

Blend of Welschriesling, Pinot Gris and Traminer. 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.

Each variety is given 5–7 days of maceration on the skins. Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel. No filtering or fining and very low sulphite additions.
