The Michlits Family operates one of the world's largest biodynamic farms in the Neusiedler See-Seewinkel National Park. The Meinklang farm is a wide and varied Demeter-certified agricultural operation cultivating a number of different crops as well as raising 300 Angus cattle. The estate represents what used to be common practice everywhere in the Pannonian countryside: a mixed farming operation, managed by extended family. The wine estate is well-integrated into the farm and led by Angela and Werner Michlits. There is nothing shy about this orange wine from Meinklang. 50% welschriesling was picked in late August, and the aromatic varieties pinot gris (25%) and traminer (25%) in early September. It is macerated for 5-7 days on the skins, and after pressing it is aged for another 4 months on the fine lees. Flavors and enjoyment hit direct, with lots of floral and citrus tones. The acidity is well-balanced and refreshing, and abv is relatively low (11.5%), making this very easy to slurp down on a beautiful day. Certified biodynamic, low-intervention, vegan.
