Langenloiser Loiserberg

Grüner Veltliner

2017

Kamptal DAC, Erste Lage ÖTW

Snow peas and rhubarb in the bouquet, slightly restrained, but subsequently reveals multiple nuances. Sponge cake and candied orange zest on the palate, middle bodied, quite nuanced and delicately woven, a statement in elegance.
Viktor Siegl

Fragrant wine of quince, ripe apple, wet fern and faint nougat notes. Lovely. Palate has intensity and concentration on its side, freshness too, good length, crispness, melon and stone fruit flavours, green apple to finish. Easy drinking with charisma.
Mike Bennie, The Wine Front

This wine derives from a vineyard on the “Loiserberg” wherein one also finds the site “Berg Vogelsang”. The difference is that the Grüner Veltliner from “Loiserberg” grows on a south to southeast facing slope, which is less exposed to the winds. The soil stems from primary rock geologically defined as zoisite-amphibolite, which is decomposing granite consisting of gneiss, mica-schist, and some clay and loess.

The 2017 vintage
This time, thankfully, we were only marginally affected by late frosts in spring and hail showers during the vegetation period. Best flowering conditions in June gave reason to hope for good ripeness in autumn. Summer was hot, and some vineyards showed dry stress, especially the younger ones on the rocky hills to the west. Irrigation helped to cope with the heat. Several regional thunder showers in August were very welcome and finally provided relief. The chances of best quality grapes also were preserved by meticulous “green & ground work” (i.e. thinning out, green harvest, turning soils, care for ground cover, etc. See our...

Maturation

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