Langenloiser Käferberg

Grüner Veltliner

2018

Kamptal DAC, Erste Lage ÖTW

An expressive bouquet that spans a wide range from wild honey & walnuts to cherry plums, revealing high maturity and yet remains a wine of prancing elegance, clear and taut; delicate fruit & luxuriant texture, packed with yellow fruit; fleshy, even plump, builds up a lot of pressure on the palate but never seems fat, quasi-Burgundian in form: the display of fruit remains quite persistent into the long finish; a wine with a future.

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 2018 vintage
Nature provided us with a rich and mature harvest! The earlier wines in the cellar indicate good things to come. Here is a quick review of our vintage 2018: January was quite warm, February and March cool once again. Then, however, instead of springtime, summer immediately arrived in Langenlois! In Kamptal we did not suffer any late frost, just a short cooler period with continuous and quite heavy rain in May and many, many hours of sunlight, making circumstances ideal for an incredibly early and perfect flowering (starting the 22nd of May). There were high hopes for an outstanding harvest. Summer was extremely dry, apart from a few...

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.
