Gruner veltliner

Grüner Veltliner

A lively style of grüner, this shows what Austria's signature grape variety can do in the warmer Burgenland region. Fleshy orchard fruits mingle with bright citrus aromas and just the merest hint of peppery spice. Meinklang like to keep things fresh and zippy, so it finishes cool and lifted at 11% abv.

Mulatschak

A blend of welschriesling, pinot gris and gewürztraminer with up to a week of skin contact. Bright and vivacious, with intense aromatics of grapefruit peel, peach tea and rose petals undercut by savoury salinity.

Mulatschak is apparently a word of Hungarian origin meaning funky and raucous entertainment...!

Graupert zweigelt

Zweigelt 'Graupert'

Referring to an unkempt person in need of a haircut, 'Graupert' is the result of wild-grown, unpruned vines from the Meinklang estate. Despite producing more bunches than pruned vines, the vines self-regulate their yield by making smaller berries with more intense flavours. There is also a greater skin-to-pulp ratio, translating to a deep, richly textured and tannic expression of zweigelt.
