Meinklang - 2011

Wonderfully juicy, enticingly different dry white.

This blend of indigenous Olaszriesling. Furmint, Harslevlu and Juhfark is a great introduction to Hungarian Somlo wines. Towards pineapple and tropical fruit on the nose, the palate delivers complex, layered minerality with lovely fresh acidity.

'This blend is Olazriezling, Juhfark, Hárslevelü and Furmint. It is herby with a blast of melon skins and citrus peel, then more of the same of the palate with the racy but firm flavours. Not so much easy and juicy as loaded with decisive, crisp and linear fruit and acidity. One for food rather than aperitif sipping.' 87 points, The Wine Gang (2011 vintage)

Decanter's Top Weekday Wines:

'The Hungarian project of a producer based in Austria's Neusiedlersee. Olaszriesling, Furmint, Hárslevelü and Juhfark make up this highly aromatic wine, all white blossom, zesty lime and tangy grapefruit. Flavours of melon with a hint of the exotic round off this interesting wine.' 16.5pts/20 (2011 vintage)

Rollover icon to see what it means:

Run by the delightful Werner Michlits, the Meinklang vineyards are to be found on the eastern side of Neusiedlersee in eastern Austrian close to the Hungarian border. Long summer days allow for the best physiological ripeness, whilst cool evenings give the grapes 'resting' time. Vineyards planted close to the lakes have high atmospheric humidity combined with warm air, the ideal conditions for Austria's world-famous sweet wines: eiswein, or ice wine. With its clear flavour and well-balanced acidity, it is made from grapes picked when temperatures plummet below freezing.
