Singing Grüner Veltliner
The grapes for this Veltliner are grown mainly in loess and gravel soils of the Kremstal region. Their distinctive fruitiness is owed to marked alternating temperatures of the north-south positioned Kremstal: warm air rising from the Danube valley is met by cool air flowing down from the nearby Waldviertel region and along the Krems river. While this warmth influences ripeness and concentrated aromas, the coolness lends strongly to the fresh fruitiness. Thanks to the adding of some Veltliner grapes from the Weinviertel, the wine takes on a light fizzy character.
The great 2013 vintage has given us exceptional wines with outstanding quality: The humidity of winter and spring was ideal for the vines. During summer, we experienced a heat-wave with an all-time temperature record in Austria which caused a later harvest than in previous years. Hence it was already a little cooler during harvest than usual. In 2013, we obtained 100% healthy grapes for wonderful wines rich of flavours. The vintage presents clean, fruity wines with fine acidity – great preconditions for full-bodied Grüner Veltliners with wonderful ripe fruit characters and more extract than the year before.
LAURENZ V. stands for five generations of the Laurenz Moser wine dynasty. And with the daughter of Laurenz Maria Moser – Sophie, born in 1991 – the 16th generation of the Moser wine family is well on its way.
A very attractive fruit bouquet yields apple, peach and citrus aromas along with a typical Veltliner spiciness and a touch of white pepper. The soft and juicy palate is supported by fine acidity. It sings on the palate!
