Laurenz V. Charming Grüner Veltliner

Kamptal

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. The northerly cool air streams from the rugged Waldviertel region and results in a significant day and night temperature difference. This in turn slows the ripening process of the grapes, and it is the diurnal effect of warm days and cool nights that makes wines from this region taste so fresh and fruity. The most beautiful kind of “Cool Climate Viticulture”.

Tasting Notes

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!

The 2017 season brought a very dry, yet cold start to the year (some might regard it as a “real winter”) with the chilly January and February oscillating between minus 10 and minus 8 degrees Celsius ( around 15°F ) transitioning into a pleasantly rain-free spring and dry summer. From mid-May to early August, we experienced unusually dry and warm conditions, coupled with short spells of sudden and heavy rainfall. This water supply was warmly welcomed, and supplied the absolute minimum that was needed to nourish the vines. First budding was comparatively early in 2017, happening around the 16th to 17th April, and the vines were consequently affected by the widespread and disastrous spell of late frost at end of April. This was followed by a second frost wave on 6th May and 10th May. Extensive thinning (green harvest) was performed during the last two weeks of July, and the latter part of August brought us much-needed rainfall. A dry and warm September encouraged the grapes to ripen at excellent physiological ripeness and the harvest occurred around two weeks earlier than our long-term average picking time on 25th September and continued through until 21st October. The typically cooling Kamptal nights help to retain the freshness and aromatic characters of the fruit, and thanks to the highly selective harvest, we were able to pick healthy and ripe grapes. Fermentation began promptly and was completed without any incidents - (approx. 17°C or 62°F). Extended maturation on the lees will result in elegant wines with longevity and fresh, lively and bright acidity. The 2017 vintage is a highly elegant, very spicy vintage with an array of fruit-driven aromas, showcasing the various terroir aspects of our beloved Kamp valley.

The 2016 vintage has brought us wines of exceptional quality and highly typical Grüner Veltliner varietal character. After a short, mild winter, budding occured relatively early, which was unfortunately affected by an extensive and disastrous spell of late frost in April and May. This inevitably caused considerable damage to the vines, and was to lead to loss in vineyard yields. The summer months of July and August brought periods of heavy rainfall at short intervals, which led to a spread of disease on the vines (peronospera). Careful canopy management and crop-thinning were crucial to maintaining healthy grapes. A dry and hot September encouraged the grapes to ripen at highly satisfactory levels. The cool nights helps to retain the freshness and aromatic characters, and thanks to the very selective harvest, we were able to pick healthy and ripe grapes in October. 2016 is a highly elegant, very spicy vintage with an array of fruit-driven aromas. Maturation on the lees has resulted in elegant wines with longevity and fresh, lively acidity.

The 2015 vintage has given us great wines with both an outstanding quality and satisfactory volumes. A beautiful spring led to perfect flowering and growth during the early summer months. July brought extremely warm days and nights, with little rainfall, and we had to wait until mid-August before the much-needed rain came to nourish the vines. A final heat wave came towards the end of August, coupled with cool nights to draw out the aromatic character in the grapes, guaranteed perfect physiological ripeness for the harvest. This enabled us to produce full-bodied wines with complexity, that display refreshing acidity and vibrant fruit characters. The 2015 vintage offers wines that possess a high quality with richness, elegance and fruit-characters, over balanced crispness and a lingering aftertaste.

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.

    "Yeasty savor and saltiness mingle with yellow pear scents on the nose of this wine. The palate adds juicy, ripe yellow plum to the mix, expanding its flavor to full-on fruitiness, with a baseline of zest and saltiness. It's generously packed, with a clean, dry and lasting finish."

    "A fresh peachy note on the nose carries a tinge of earthy yeast and savoriness. The palate offers zesty concentration and more of that textured yeasty soy spice. This is fresh but rounded and shows ample backbone on its concentrated palate."
