Grüner Veltliner Löss 2018
Grüner Veltliner Löss forms the basis of our portfolio. It is sourced from vines growing on the eponymous loess soils. They have been formed over the millennia by deposits of weathering alpine rock, crushed under the weight of ice age glaciers. Enormous storms have deposited this dust, in various mineral compositions of clays, lime, quartz and mica, also in the southern Kamptal. The mineral-rich and porous soil, in which the vines form a deep root system, characterizes the typical bright fruit and cool spice of this Veltliner.
