Kamptal DAC 2020
In our Riesling "Ortswein" we try to reflect Langenlois in liquid form. The grapes for it come from selected parcels in the high-altitude vineyard sites around Langenlois, with the aim of capturing Langenlois in all its geological, topographical and climatic diversity. The rocky soils, the exposures of the vineyards and the special climate around Langenlois provide ideal terrain for the Riesling vines. The old vines are rooted in mica schist and gneiss soils and enjoy an interplay of sunny summer days and cool nights, giving the wines a distinct dynamism and liveliness. The Langenlois Riesling is a typical Kamptal wine. This wine impresses with fruity elegance and mineral character. A wine with vibrant, ripe acid structure and length.
Making of the Wine
The Riesling grapes for the Langenlois Ortswein were selectively harvested by hand. After a few hours of maceration, the wine was vinified in stainless steel, with gentle bâtonage on the fine lees.
