2019 Claus Preisinger ‘Kalkundkiesel’ Field Blend
Claus started his 22ha farm in 2000 and has applied biodynamic principles since the beginning. In 2004 he was one of the founding members of the Pannobile group of wine makers. His vineyard
work is meticulous and he is deeply in touch with his land. He uses
a mixture of techniques including homeopathic tea’s, humus from compost of cattle and horses strictly from Steiner philosophies.
Claus’ Kalk und Kiesel is a blend of Weissburgunder, Grüner Veltliner, Welschriesling and a touch of Muscat Ottonel. The grapes come from limestone (kalk) and pebbly (kiesel) soils. The grapes were macerated on the skins for 5 to 14 days and spontaneously fermented in 1200 litre barrels and amphorae. This wine is bottled with the lees and no sulphur is added.
