Farming Notes: Meinklang's herd of Angus cows populate the landscape of picturesque Lake Neusiedl, which straddles the Austrian-Hungarian border. Cows are the key element in biodynamic farming and complete the ecological circle. They are the source of nutritious fertilizer for all of Meinklang's vineyards. Lively soil and harmonious vine metabolism are a central focus for the Michlits family.

Winemaking Notes: The Michlits family does not green harvest. Instead, they do an early pass through all of their red vines and pick various clusters for the Meinklang Prosa Sparkling Rosé. This sparkling is produced via the Charmat method. It is not fined before bottling.

Tasting Notes: The Meinklang Prosa Sparkling Rosé is a playful and refreshing sparkling wine. The tannins are light, and the wine is delightfully zesty with lots of berry fruit flavors, especially strawberry, and fine herbal spice. It is a perfect wine for picnics, barbecues, friendly gatherings, morning breakfast, etc.

"Meinklang, the biodynamic estate in the Burgenland region of Austria, almost never fails to delight. Whether Blaufränkisch, Grüner Veltliner or anything else, the wines are always pure, fresh and delicious. This lightly sparkling rosé tastes gently of red fruit and flowers, and will go with burgers, grilled salmon or even just by itself."

"If the word rosé is synonymous with the South of France to you, you’re in for a surprise with Meinklang’s Prosa Pet Nat. Made from a blend of Blaufränkisch, Pinot Noir, and Zweigelt grapes, this rose is produced in the Burgenland region of Austria, on the border of the Hungarian lowlands. This biodynamic, unrefined, and unfiltered wine pairs well with spicy, vibrant foods (Primal Wine suggests tacos, and we’re inclined to agree)."
