Preisinger Puszta Libre 2018Preisinger
Puszta Libre! is Claus’ loose interpertation of Burgenland table wine. A blend of St. Laurent and Zweigelt with grapes sourced from vineyards in the Pannonia lowlands at the north end of Lake Neusiedl and between the Seewinkel, this wine is made in a light “Burgenland Beaujolais” style. 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! The wine should be “Gekhült Servieren,” or served chilled as the label indicates.
