Grapes: St Laurent, Zweigelt Style: Red ABV: 12% Production: Biodynamic Any added sulphites: Minimal Filtered: No Size: 75cl
A certified slammer from Burgenland's Claus Preisinger. This blend of Zweigelt and St Laurent is packed full of blackberries and wafts of spice, with just a hint of tannin it is a welcome addition to any table, park or beach, especially when served a little chilled.
The retro-style bottle and label is reminiscent of the vessels once used for lemonade in the 1920s. The eponymously named Puszta, which translates to “prairie” or “plains” in Hungarian, harkens back to a time when the source vineyard sites were once part of Hungary. Libre, of course, is Spanish for “free.” You are now free to drink and don’t think with the easy quaffing Puszta Libre!
Claus Preisinger has been working biodynamically near the shores of Lake Neusiedlersee in Burgenland for over a decade and now farms nineteen hectares over some sixty parcels, producing a staggering number of cuvees each year.
