Langenloiser Käferberg

Grüner Veltliner

2019

Kamptal DAC, Erste Lage ÖTW

Distinctive, profound and full of verve with hints of greengage plum and pineapple, aniseed and ginger spice. Powerful but not too opulent, mouth-melting creaminess, again yellow fruit aspects, sweetly extracted with a fine-grained texture. Very agile and persistent, tremendous ageing potential.

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 2019 vintage
Our vineyards, all certificated BIO since 2018 (Lacon-AT-BIO-402), started well-tended into the 2019 vegetation period. Spring began dry and almost summery, following a warm and moderately humid winter. Early sprouting gave rise to the fear of late frosts. In fact, in May it became rather cool, though temperatures remained mostly above the danger threshold, and thus we came away with only little damage. The humidity accompanying the cold proved to be a blessing, as it brought the vines well-hydrated to a quite early flowering. However, we were around two weeks later compared to the earliest year - 2018. By the end of august, we began...

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.
