Grüner Veltliner Langenlois 2018
Every wine village is unique in terms of location, elevation and geology. An Ortswein (Village Wine) reflects this geological and microclimatic spectrum. The historic town Langenlois is no only the center of the Kamptal appellation, it is also our center of life. Gruener Veltliner is predominantly grown on limy, partly clayey, loess and loam soils, which cover the area from the southeast to the higher lying western plateau. This elegant Veltliner, bottled after over 6 months on the lees, is characterized by pithy fruit and spicy minerality, which unmistakably reflect its origin.
