Laurenz V. Charming Grüner Veltliner

Kamptal

LAURENZ V. represents five generations of winemaking experience by the Laurenz Moser family and is inspired by legendary Professor Dr. Lorenz Moser III who earned international fame for his invention of the Austrian trellising system, which revolutionized vineyard cultivation right across Europe and put Grüner Veltliner on the map.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of ripe apples and a typical Veltliner spiciness marry to create a fascinatingfruit 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 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 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”.

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.

"This features underlying powerful and rich acidity to the creamy flavors of apple pastry, dried mango and lentil. Beeswax and dried mint details show on the spicy finish. Drink now through 2020"
