Tasting notes on the wine:
"Low-alcohol and fun, this light-colored red wine is a blend of Zweigelt and St. Laurent. It is vibrant with great acidity, and tastes just like ripe, freshly pressed pomegranate juice. Boasting notes of spicy mulberries, as well as a silky texture thanks to its light tannins, Mulatschak is a very versatile red wine." — Isabelle Legeron
About the winemaker:
"Meinklang is living proof that it is possible to farm beautifully at scale. It is a closed-loop, self-sufficient, 5000-acre biodynamic farm, home to Angus and Aubrac cattle herds, Mangalitsa pigs, horses, sheep, and a few chickens. It grows spelt, oats, rye, winter and summer barley, winter and summer durum wheat, millet, corn. and buckwheat, Topaz apples, and grapes (some of which are completely unpruned)." — Isabelle Legeron
