Puszta is a juicy, peppery, chuggable delight; made in the style of a Beaujolais and intended to be served chilled and poured by the generous glassful.
Claus is deeply committed to working in harmony with nature, and has been certified biodynamic since 2009. He also keeps his cellar interventions to a minimum, strongly advocating for wines that achieve balance naturally. Very little sulphur is added to his wines – Claus decides just before bottling if it is strictly necessary.
‘Puszta’ is the Hungarian name for the Pannonian Steppe, a vast plain that covers an area of 50,000 km in Hungary and stretches all the way to Neusiedlersee. This wine is a blend of 80% Zweigelt and 20% St. Laurent. The fruit is destemmed, a portion of the grapes is carbonically fermented, while the rest are pressed directly. The wine is spontaneously fermented and aged in 3000 litre foudres, and bottled without filtration.
