ABOUT: Meinklang (translates to “my sound”) rules the roost when it comes to biodynamic wines from Austria. Lots and lots have been written about their incredible farm, wild vines, massive cover crops, poop filled horns, all that stuff. Look it up. I have nothing new to add except my recent love affair with Meinklang wines, which I discovered at the RAW Wine Fair in Berlin 2018. All the wines were aromatically lifted, fresh, wild, sort of exotic. Pulsing energy. These are wines that go through phases of development rather than wilting days after opening. It’s all about wine phases.

TASTE: Zweigelt is a cool, trending red grape variety from Austria that can make pretty distinct wine. I like it for it’s easy going, down the middle values (medium tannin, acid, body, alcohol) and it’s ability to translate it’s earthy surroundings into a delicious beverage. This wild Zweigelt has aromas and flavors of cherries, blackberries, mushrooms, potting soil, and a tangy orange peel freshness. The vines are grown savage and it really comes through in the juice. Long finish, drink it up.

PAIR: Cabbage soup, grilled eggplant, bell pepper laden pizza, chile relleno, mole tacos with goat cheese.
