Charming Grüner Veltliner
The grapes for this very charming wine are grown in the Kamptal region of Austria. Here, the Grüner Veltliner ripens in granite, gneiss, mica slate as well as loess soils. From the neighbouring region to the north, the rugged Waldviertel, blows cool air that substantially lowers night temperatures in the Kamptal; this in turn slows up the ripening process of the grapes. But these conditions are exactly why the wines from this region taste so fresh and fruity. The most beautiful kind of "Cool Climate

The great 2014 vintage has given us exceptional wines with outstanding quality. The first months of the year were influenced by a lasting drought. However, as of May it started to rain which brought us a flowering and vegetation period that filled us with hope for a great vintage. Due to the difficult weather conditions, including long rainy periods during summer and autumn, we undertook a rigorous selection in the vineyards to achieve 100% healthy and ripened grapes. This enabled us to create wonderful wines that are rich in flavour. The vintage displays clean, fruit-driven, fullbodied and complex wines with lively acidity. This is perfect for our typical Grüner Veltliner wines which are full of vibrant fruit characters and vital freshness.
Aromas of ripe apples and a typical Veltliner spiciness marry to create a fascinating fruit bouquet. On the palate, the wine is soft and juicy, supported by a fine fruit acidity. Very harmonious, allowing for perfectly smooth drinking. Simply charming!
