Langenloiser Steinmassel

Riesling

2015

Kamptal DAC, Erste Lage ÖTW

Smoky beginning, with touches of both yellow and white peaches and a cool-tart note. Spicy and savoury with medium weight and a vibrant, racy freshness; quite muscular with a firm acidity backbone. Impeccable. Will soon be ready for drinking pleasure.

The vines are partially trained in the Lyre-system. The vine bifurcates in a way that the branches seem to reach to the heavens like sun-worshippers. This method doubles canopy exposure and favors aeration which improves photosynthesis and prevents dreaded fungus diseases.

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 meager, stony soil provides small berries with concentrated flavor. As far as Riesling is concerned, an important part of the flavor is stored in the grape skins and is set free only by extremely slow pressing of up to 8 hours duration or prolonged skin contact over night.

Fermentation is done in stainless steel and maturation is completed on 5-10% of the lees.

Food pairing recommendation

All types of starters, seafood, marinated, smoked or grilled fish, fried chicken or Schnitzel; white meats, a good alternative to red wine in combination with roast fat duck; matches with all sorts of Pan Asian cuisine.
