Claus Preisinger Fruitloops Weiss 2020


As the name suggests, there’s an abundance of stone and tropical fruit aromatics here, but it’s balanced nicely with waxy texture, and dry, taut freshness. From predominantly limestone soils, this is a blend of varieties that reflect both Germanic and Hungarian influence. It’s 50% Scheurebe with 25% Furmint and 25% Riesling. It’s fermented with indigenous yeasts in Amphora and is 100% delicious.

Claus Preisinger is based in Burgenland, on the north shore of Lake Neusiedl in the town of Gols. This might not ring any bells, but it’s south east of Vienna, and basically the home of Austria’s top notch reds in particular. From small, dry-farmed parcels totalling 20 hectares, Claus has quickly become renowned for wines made naturally with minimal intervention. He is committed to biodynamic production, achieving certification in 2009.
