Meinklang Icewine

Meinklang Icewine

Burgenland, Austria
Meinklang - 2012/14
Product Code: CAA02
Grape: Traminer
Size: 37.5cl
Alcohol: 15.5%
This Austrian Meinklang icewine is made using Traminer grapes, which are harvested at temperatures of 7 degrees (or lower). The cold of Austria helps the grapes to retain their acidity, but with just enough sweetness to give them the ripe, rich flavour for which the Austrian icewine is famous. This dessert wine has luscious, complex flavours, with a hint of acidity to offset the heavy nectar sweetness.

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.
