Run by the delightful Werner Michlits, the Meinklang vineyards are to be found on the eastern side of Neusiedlersee in eastern Austria close to the Hungarian border. Long summer days allow for the best physiological ripeness, whilst cool evenings give the grapes ‘resting’ time. Vineyards planted close to the lakes have high atmospheric humidity combined with warm air, the ideal conditions for Austria’s world-famous sweet wines: eiswein, or ice wine. With its clear flavour and well-balanced acidity, it is made from grapes picked when temperatures plummet below freezing.
This Pinot has all the hallmarks of and excellent wine, especially at this price point. The nose has red fruits with earthy notes that draws you in. The palate is juicy but not over-blown, classy and silky in the glass. Can be served chilled, but may appear cloudy as the wine is unfiltered.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
The enthusiasm of Bénédicte and Christophe Piat, owners of this estate, is positively infectious. In the years since they bought the property, they have won gold medals aplenty, received glowing reviews from Robert Parker and countless other recommendations in wine publications at home and abroad for their fruit-driven, supple wines. Located at the highest point of the Gironde, the estate’s chalky clay soil rests on top of steep chalky substratum – perfect for the merlot grape, which thrives in these conditions. The 2015 vintage was excellent in Bordeaux produce rich ripe fruit.
This 100% Merlot wine has ripe plum and dark fruit flavours, marked by well integtrated tannins and oak notes.

Topiary's widely acclaimed Chardonnay vineyard sits above the cellar on some of the rockiest and poorest soils to be found on the farm which give extremely small and concentrated berries. Subtle citrus cream notes on the nose combine with candied lemon, hazelnuts and vanilla. The palate is rich with a taut mineral freshness balanced by honeyed white peach and yellow plum. This would not be out of place amongst the best Chardonnays from Burgundy, with Tim Atkin awarding it an impressive 94 points.
In the glass the wine is beautifully restrained, with cured meat, lavender and purple petal notes. On the palate, it is luxurious and well defined, offering red cherry spice, Victoria plum and white pepper flavours. Meaty, spicy and unfiltered, this is very much a northern Rhône style, with clove and cracked pepper notes and a core of bramble and red berry sweetness.
Topiary's 10 hectares of Shiraz vineyards are state of the art, with drip irrigation, high density planting and virus free plant material. Just 3,500 bottles were produced in the 2014 vintage, Topiary choosing to concentrate only on the very finest barrels at their disposal.
