Langenloiser Berg Vogelsang

Grüner Veltliner

2017

Kamptal DAC

Seductive bouquet of jasmine and incense, equally unusual and attractive. Anis spice remains discreet, animated and distinctive. Round and balanced on the palate despite a bit of weight. Elstar apple and yellow fruit accents in the background, crystal clear with promising potential.

The 2017 vintage
This time, thankfully, we were only marginally affected by late frosts in spring and hail showers during the vegetation period. Best flowering conditions in June gave reason to hope for good ripeness in autumn. Summer was hot, and some vineyards showed dry stress, especially the younger ones on the rocky hills to the west. Irrigation helped to cope with the heat. Several regional thunder showers in August were very welcome and finally provided relief. The chances of best quality grapes also were preserved by meticulous “green & ground work” (i.e. thinning out, green harvest, turning soils, care for ground cover, etc. See our...

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.
