Grüner Veltliner Urgestein 2022
Grüner Veltliner Urgestein is a typical Kamptal wine. Down-to-earth, but with precision and drinkability, it reflects the Kamptal spiciness, freshness and minerality. The vines are rooted in small plots in very high altitude vineyards, in primary rock soils characterized by gneiss and mica schist. Due to the high elevations and proximity to the forest edge, the climate is noticeably cooler, with pronounced temperature differences between day and night.
Grüner Veltliner Urgestein impresses with its precise and balanced interplay of spice and fruit, with notes of ripe apples and an elegant herbaceous nose. The freshness and pepperiness continue on the palate. A lively acid structure gives the wine length and freshness, with vibrant vertical structure.
Making of the wine
The grapes were selectively harvested by hand and brought to the press house unharmed in stackable boxes, destemmed and pressed at low pressure after a few hours of maceration. Vinification was carried out in stainless steel in the 700-year-old natural cellar. Subsequently, the wine was matured for some time on its fine lees, which again emphasized the complexity.
