Grüner Veltliner 2020
Kamptal DAC Erste Lage
In our vineyards in the south-eastern part of the Langenlois Loiserberg, Veltliner-vines are rooted deeply in mica slate interspersed with loess. Hand-picked grapes were carefully transformed into wine and matured in our 700-year-old natural cellar in large wooden barrels. The very steep and meager terraces of the Loiserberg vineyard provide the best conditions for an ideal Grüner Veltliner with a distinct character, deep fruitiness and an elegant style.
The vineyard is situated on the south-south-east side, laid out in terraces, reaches up to 380 m above sea level and is one of our highest sites. The vines are deeply rooted in crystalline mica slate. The Loiserberg is the most westerly elevation in Langenlois towards the Waldviertel region and thus enjoys a very special microclimate. Even on warm summer days, the vines are influenced by cooler winds from the rougher Waldviertel, which gives the wines a ripe acid structure, cool elegance and lightness.
