    ‘Puszta’ is the Hungarian name for the Pannonian Steppe, a vast plain that covers an area of 50,000km in Hungary and stretches all the way to Neusiedlersee. This wine is a blend of 80% Zweigelt and 20% St. Laurent. The fruit is destemmed, a portion of the grapes is carbonically fermented, while the rest are pressed directly. The wine is bottled without filtration.

    Producer

    Claus Preisinger’s winery is nestled in the village of Gols by Lake Neusiedlersee in Burgenland. In 2004 he was one of the founding members of the Pannobile group of winemakers, a group that uses respect for the land and terroir to preserve traditions in Burgenland. His vineyard work is meticulous and he is deeply in touch with his land. He uses a mixture of techniques including homeopathic teas, compost from cattle and horses and works strictly from Steiner's biodynamic philosophies. His vines are spread across 58 parcels and are largely planted to indigenous varieties such as Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent.

    More recently Claus has started working with Grüner Veltliner and Weissburgunder, producing distinctive, skin fermented white wines. Despite the modernity of his striking winery everything done inside is hands-off and inherently natural, with indigenous yeasts taking control of each years ferments. Claus’ priority has always been to produce wine that is pure, balanced, and expressive of his terroir. Claus was one of the first Austrian winemakers to start experimenting with skin contact wines fermented in Georgian amphorae.

    Claus is deeply committed to working in harmony with nature, and has been certified biodynamic since 2009. He also keeps his cellar interventions to a minimum, strongly advocating for wines that achieve balance naturally. Very little sulphur is added to his wines - Claus decides just before bottling if it is strictly necessary.

    Claus is spearheading a new wave of great young Austrian producers with a non-apologetic, genuine and credible approach. Indigenous varietals take staring roles in his production and his examples are bright, pure and instinctual.
