Delicious juicy and complex cuvée. Great for beginners who want to start discovering the world of orange wines. The multilingual among you may pick up the nod to the land in the name – 'kalk' (limestone) and 'kiesel' (pebble). The wine is beautifully expressive of the terroir, with aromas of white nectarine and citrus.

A surfer at heart, Claus Preisinger has been making wine on the north shore of Lake Neusiedl in the Burgenland town of Gols since 2002. He converted the vineyards and winery to biodynamic production in 2006 and is Respekt Biodyn certified. Claus vinifies mostly domestic grape varieties such as Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt, Grüner Veltliner, and St. Laurent, supplemented by Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc from both the west and east sides of Lake Neusiedl. Claus does not use any cultivated yeast and only very slight or no dosing of sulfur dioxide. He ages many of his wines in amphora rather than wooden barrels, which he views as a conscious step back, a reduction to the essential - the grape and the soil.
