My first experience with a Claus Preisinger wine was an aha! moment. It was Zweigelt (this wine), at an amazing restaurant in Australia as part of the matching wine degustation (yes, fancy fancy - but not actually, just quality). It grabbed my attention among all of the other fabulous wines for its clarity, and easy sense of place that wasn't where I was. It was foreign and subtly very alluring. It set me on a course that led me to now stock the wines and proclaim their quality to anyone who will listen. Basically, this is the shit.
Kieselstein is the site. Zweigelt is the grape. Claus is the man.
This is probably the best value wine in town. Seriously a steal at the price. Get some.
Claus works with gut instinct supported by meticulous know-how, biodynamic vineyards, low-tech winemaking and a lot of heart. The wines convey all of this and more in wines of incredible elegance, tension and clarity.
