Langenloiser Berg Vogelsang

Grüner Veltliner

2016

Kamptal DAC

A wine revealing notes of cloves and citrus; playful yet multi-faceted; very appealing and accommodating. Anise spice à la pastis continues along the palate. Carefree and peppy character with plenty of charm, a cool note and vibrant acidity. Soon ready for drinking pleasure.

The 2016 vintage
When flowering began on June 10th, it signalled that 2016 was one of the earliest - though not extremely early - vintages, which indeed was very promising; we had expected wines that were mature, but not heavy, and were looking forward to having the entire spectrum, from light and fresh sparkling and Grüner Veltliner wines, to outstanding, late harvest Reserve quality wines.After a relatively damp spring, the summer proved rainy as well. It was only during the last week of August that a sunny, stable weather period began, allowing for a wonderful development of ripeness. A very sunny and warm September was followed in early October by a...

Maturation

Grapes are normally harvested physiologically ripe at the middle of October. The wine is fermented at semi-cool temperatures between 15° to 20° C before being racked into large oak casks for a few weeks of further maturation. To retain its primary fruit this Veltliner is bottled rather early, just at the point when the acidity has lost its aggressive touch.
