Grüner Veltliner 2019
Kamptal DAC Lage
In our vineyards on the Langenloiser Riede Dechant, 70-year-old vines are rooted deep in the loess. Manual work in the vineyard and craftsmanship in the cellar give the wine a natural balance, substance and character. This wine contains everything that the vines have learned over decades: The age of the vines and the resulting natural yield reduction result in a highly mature wine, rich in substance with balance, clear fruit and elegance that lingers for a long time.
The vineyard is characterised by deep loamy loess, which ensures an optimal nutrient supply for the vines. The Veltliner vineyard with south-eastern exposure is sheltered from the wind from the north-east, which allows the grapes to ripen evenly. The old, mighty vines have particularly deep roots here. Year after year, this low yield, combined with the traditional small-berry selection, produces expressive and elegant Grüner Veltliner.
