Starts off green & tart with underripe apples & pears, a touch of jasmine - quite austere.
On the palate it’s bone dry wi the racy acidity but here’s a bit of creaminess to the mouthfeel. Nice tension & energy here. It’s slightly tough around the edges with good structure & depth. A really nice wine! — a month ago
After 20 years this is lovely and sticky with toffee and citrus notes — 6 months ago
Cool climate Grenache! Delicate, floral, very elegant. Snap it up. Probably can age 5-10 yrs, but oh so enjoyable right now. 75% Grenache, 25% Syrah from same Demeter certified vineyard. — 9 months ago
Meinklang is one of my favorite producers anywhere and we finally scored most of their lineup for the first time I can remember in Austin. Like Foradori, Meinklang is a picturesque self-sustaining Demeter certified biodynamic and organic farm which happens to make insanely good wines.
This is just about the prettiest shade of Pinot Grigio (aka Grauburgunder) I’ve ever seen.
It’s expertly assembled - sour honeyed tangerine and apricot.
Graupert is slang for a scruffy or wild soul - the Pinot gris is grown untrimmed, left to spread its vines wild.

An Austrian Weissburgunder made by 3 sibs. Demeter Certified and 7/10 on my Natty Wine Scale.
Deep hazy yellow. Nose of green apple with flavors of citrus and stone fruit with a flash of something herbal. + acidity. An interesting and sincere wine. Fun to drink but overall not outstanding. Want to try other varieties by this family. — 3 months ago
2018 vintage. 60 Zweigelt 30 Blaufrankisch 10 St. Laurent, Demeter certified. Light-bodied, elegant, and floral-spicy. Candied cherry, red plum, candied violet, red apple peel, crabapple, pomegranate, perfuminess reminiscent of nutmeg, allspice, and incense. Good warm weather red for fans of PN and Beaujolais. — a year ago
Lobster shell in roe with Sherry sweetness and hawthorn flower and hibiscus aromas aswim in brewer’s yeast. Phenomenally complex. White and bing cherries with underripe apricot and strawberry, lime and lime again, lemon pith and oil, chalky lemon juices, and scallop shell. Flavors off the chart with the biodynamic touch!
