We were thrilled to get our hands on some Meinklang Tag, an excellent Gruner Veltliner with a dazzling label. Meinklang recruited artist Billy Ward to create four labels for a special series of wines related to time (morgen, tag, abend, nacht). The label for Tag is our favorite, an eye popping interpretation of a fresh and vibrant Gruner Veltliner reaching for the sun. It really stands out on the shelf. Tag goes through carbonic maceration for a few weeks, then ferments with native yeasts. It spends 9 months in concrete eggs before being released. The wine is bottled fresh and hazy, and we think it’s pretty great. Drink this staring at the label or into a cows eyes.

Tasting note: Tag is made in a fast and light style from 15 year old Gruner Veltliner vines. It is golden in color and has a little bit of haze to it. The aromas and flavors are vivid, with bright green apples, lemons and their peels, pear, seaweed, honeydew melon, pineapple, and bubbling yeast with some searing, limey acid. It has a whiff of exotic spice and a tiny bit of residual co2. Long finish, high acidity and highly complex. It has enough acid for good development and it’ll be fascinating to see what happens in the near future.
