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.
