Our older vintages

Langenloiser Loiser Berg

Grüner Veltliner

2015

Kamptal DAC, Erste Lage ÖTW

Black bread and quince notes, though still somewhat reserved with a yeast note underneath. Fleshy and supple, balanced – also reductive and restrained with some stone fruit tones.

This wine derives from a vineyard on the Loiser Berg wherein one also finds the site Berg Vogelsang. The difference is that the Grüner Veltliner from “Loiser Berg” grows on a south to southeast facing slope, which is less exposed to the winds.

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

The wine is fermented at a moderate 15-20°C before being racked into large wooden casks for further maturing.

Food pairing recommendation

A versatile partner to food; try seafood or cold starters, exotic dishes if not too spicy, as well as all types of Austrian cuisine, cold meat, smoked trout, but also roasted pork or calf, white meat in general, chicken in any style, boiled beef or pork even with vegetables.
