Langenloiser Loiser Berg
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.

Site and climate
The two neighbouring vineyards, Loiserberg and Berg Vogelsang rise to 380 meters above sea level, they are windy and experience extreme temperatures. 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 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.
