Meinklang Pinot Noir Frizzante Prosa
Austrian Pinot Noir is amongst the best in the world... no kidding! And this has got all the fresh, red berry fruit that you'd expect with bubbles added. Absolutely charming, in every sense of the word.
88 Points - The Wine Gang, 'Summer's here, Wimbledon's almost here, so how about the frothy strawberry and cherry charms of this come-hither beauty that is well balanced, its strawberry pulp sweetness precisiely defined by its acidity. Delicious - and biodynamic.' June 2016 (2015 vintage)
'This is a gorgeous sparkling wine, made with pinot noir grapes grown on a biodynamic wine estate. We found the taste experience harmoniously ripe with red fruit and pleasantly balanced between sweet and dry, no doubt in part to the nutritious, rich fertiliser provided by the Angus cows roaming the Meinklang vineyards.' Simply Woman Magazine April 2016 (2015 vintage)
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.
