Meinklang Konkret 2014


A darkly hued Saint Laurent, deep with purple fruit and roughened stones leading to a core of dense blackberry fruit. An elegant and subtle wine for gatherings and a great choice for pâté, terrines, sausages, and eggplant. “Konkret” refers to a new method of vinification in 9-hectoliter concrete “eggs” (egg-shaped vessels). The extremely fine pores allow a controlled supply of oxygen to the wine. The wine, "incubated" in the egg for 12 months, ends up with a pure, straightforward, unadulterated character that can only be called "concrete."
