For wine, I tried three wines from Meinklang. I started with Meinklang Burgenland White Osterreich, 2019, Pamhagen, Austria, $22. This is a blend of gruner veltliner, riesling, and muscat. The wine pale yellow in the glass and is aromatic in a tempting way, drawing you in with bright floral and citrus notes. On the palate, it is vibrant and crisp with green apple, bright lime and fresh pear flavors. 89 points.
Next, I tried Meinklang Prosa, Pamhagen, Austria, 2019, $18. This is a rosé made from pinot noir that is pretty pink with effervescence in the glass. It offers aromas of peaches and cream and candied red fruit. The wine is pure and supple with flavors of peach, nectarine, fresh strawberry, red raspberry and a hint of citrus. The wine is fun, fresh and tasty. Almost too easy to drink. 90 points.
The final wine was Meinklang Burgenland Red Ostereich, Pamhagen, Austria, 2019, $18. The wine is deep garnet in the glass on the nose it has gorgeous rich red fruit, blackberry, plum and blueberry. The wine is easy and delicate on the palate but with expressive boysenberry, brambleberry, and a hint of baker’s spice. 89 points.
Paired with the Parthenon’s Mousaka, the Meinklang Burgenland Red was my favorite although all of the wines worked well. The red however brought out some of the spice flavors of the meat and tomato sauce that made a fantastic dish taste even better.
