Our older vintages

Langenloiser Käferberg

Grüner Veltliner

2015

Kamptal DAC Reserve, Erste Lage ÖTW

Immediately appealing bouquet with red berry hints à la raspberry, but also tangerine peel. Tight and very fruity, juicy and seductive; with significant body, but never overbearing; rich and velvety with plenty of charm, very tight and precise. Noble expression with great length; a premium Veltliner for many, many years.

The soil here differs from that of all other sites in the region. At the 300 metre level, preserved calcareous, clayey marine deposits are found. This soil is similar to that of the famous Château Petrus in Pomerol, and produces an extremely dense wine, although it is difficult to work with. The elevation contributes good acidity structure also in warm vintages and late harvests.

The 2015 vintage
The 2015 vintage will go down into wine history in several ways! After two cool years with extreme and difficult conditions, we experienced with this golden autumn the quickest and most enjoyable harvest in several years. The warm spring and the early, problem-free flowering promised a long vegetation period. The summer was hot and dry; autumn brought ideal picking conditions, although it was interrupted by some cool and damp days - which in turn served to develop the aromas. What followed was an essentially problem-free and speedy harvest, yielding everything from classic white wines to fruit-toned red wines to powerful white and red...

Maturation

This wine is usually fermented in used (2 - 3 years old) 300 liter Austrian oak barrels. For further maturation, it is racked into 2.500 l casks (also 2 - 3 years old).

Food pairing recommendation

Exotic dishes like curry and stir-fried dishes; typical Austrian dishes like Wiener Schnitzel, and roasted goose, duck or pork; goose or duck liver with vegetables and fruit; calf’s liver with apples and onions etc.
