Riesling 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 the center of the Kamptal appellation. Our Riesling vines grow on the terraced slopes northwest of the town, an area completely formed of metamorphic and crystalline rock soils. This elegant Riesling, bottled after over 6 months on the lees, is characterized by a fine stonefruit aromatic and salty minerality, which unmistakably reflect its origin.
