Ried Loiserberg

Grüner Veltliner

2022

Kamptal DAC, Erste Lage ÖTW

Apple, fresh pears and hay flowers, rich and solid, though still somewhat reduced but truly pithy, some pome fruit in the “umami” mid palate, well balanced by vibrant acidity, promising.

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 2022 vintage
Conditions in September 2022, right at the beginning of harvest, seemed relatively favourable for the Kamptal vintners: With the exception of a dry first quarter, our region had been spoiled with well-distributed rainfalls as well as many sunny hours. Our vineyards were looking healthy and still full of vitality. There had hardly been any frost and we only had suffered minor hail damage on Käferberg and Lamm, which happened early in summer and thus reduced the quantity but not the quality of the grapes. Ripeness was about a week ahead of 2021, but did start still a good deal later than in warm years such as 2017, 2018 and 2019. The...

Maturation

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