Our wines

Langenloiser Loiserberg

Grüner Veltliner

2018

Kamptal DAC, Erste Lage ÖTW

Delicate pear fruit and a hint of snow peas, refreshing & stimulating, nicely balanced even early-on; very juicy at medium volume, already harmonious, frequent bursts of fruit-flavour, almost plump but also shows a lot of backbone & some length.

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 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

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.
