Claus Preisinger Puszta Libre! 2016
Feiring Line Wine Soceity: November 2017 Selection
From Alice: Seems like 1980 was the birth year for a lot of great new voices in the wine world, and that's the one Claus was born in as well. He works quite a bit of land, 19ha. He's adorable, and even better, he is a strong new voice of new Austria. This Puszta is charming - take it to Thanksgiving or a crowd and just tell everyone it's beaujolais with a twist. Gulpable, delicious, the fruit is destemmed, a portion of the grapes is carbonically fermented, while the rest is pressed directly. The wine is spontaneously fermented and aged in 3000 litre foudres, and bottled without filtration.
