Claus Preisinger Puszta Libre Burgenland

Claus Preisinger Puszta Libre Burgenland

€22.95
 
A lovely organic red wine, with aromas of raspberry, black cherry, dark earth and black pepper. Juicy on the palate with plenty of big dark fruits, five spice and savoury notes of tobacco and soy sauce. Puszta, in Hungarian, translates to prairie when the source vineyard sites were once part of Hungary. This wine should be served chilled.

Description

Wine is in the blood of Claus Preisinger: He comes from a wine making family, studied Oenology at school and college then trained at wineries in Austria, Italy and California. Today he makes wine from a scenic location on the edge of Lake Neusiedl, with 18 hectares of vines spread between three separate villages. All his sites are farmed according to biodynamic principles. He focuses on indigenous varieties such as Zweigelt, Blaufrankisch, Weissburgunder and St Laurent. Claus's approach to wine making is very much about minimum intervention in the vineyard and the winery. His mantra is 'pure, natural and low-tech' and that is what attracted us to his wines. His wines are a pure expression of the grapes and soil they are grown in but are far from simple.
