Meinklang

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.
