Langenloiser Grüner Veltliner Alte Reben Auslese
Brilliant bouquet of white flowers, exotic fruits and apple tarte with a whiff of peppery spice, youthful and fresh with a creamy texture, loads of fruit and spice, full bodied but light in alcohol, perfect balance of sweetness and acidity. Very elegant towards the long & mineral finish.
“Alte Reben” means “old vines” and designates a wine sourced from renowned vineyards, all situated around Langenlois and its plants averaging 50 years. Older vines are less productive, forming fewer and smaller grapes which then profit from a well-developed root system, reaching deeply into the ground. “Alte Reben” supply their fruit easier with water and potent nourishment. As a consequence, wines of these vineyards can be extremely flavorful and concentrated.
In 2018 by the end of October, after a meticulous hand selection in the vineyards, we brought in highly ripe but only slightly botrytised “late harvest” grapes. The resulting must started fermenting in a stainless steel tank and in the state of declining fermentation was racked into a big oak barrels to mature for another 6 months.
