Gruner Veltliner Loss Kamptal

Gruner Veltliner Loss Kamptal

Ref: A097715

Spicy, pineapple, round and juicy – even in the nose. This wine remains exotic on the palate and is accompanied by salty components which derives from the the loess . Balanced, compact, and smooth. Framed by refreshing, lively acidity that is subtly buffered by a soft, round body.

The loess and weathered primary rock soils of the Kamptal offer the ideal geological preconditions for the region’s most characteristic wine, the Grüner Veltliner (12.5% abv). “Löss” is the logical reply to “Stein”. While the “Stein” is marked by its primary rock origin, the “Löss” expresses its loess soils. Loess is principally sediment that is primarily comprised of silicate minerals like quartz, feldspar and mica and often limestone as well. The Spiegel is a southeast-facing site above Langenlois that is based primarily on loess and most of the grapes for the “Löss” are sourced from there. The remainder comes from Kremsfeld and because both vineyards are among the warmer sites, this is also correspondingly manifested in the wine.

Traditional vinification: Picked by hand the grapes are carefully put into stackable crates and are taken to the press house without getting damaged. The berries are destemmed and then gently pressed. Wild yeasts begin the fermentation and then the wine is put into large, used wooden casks before being bottled in spring.

A special aspect of a family-run business is, that you don’t think in yearly revenues, but rather in generations. This applies all the more to viticulture, because the quality of the wines of your children and grand-children will depend on how close to nature (meaning "close to a natural ecosystem/environment") you deal with your vineyards today. This is the creed of the Jurtschitsch family. The fact that family members from three generations are actively at work in the estate clearly shows the co-operation within the family and their future-oriented philosophy in wine-making.

Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 2014, Jean-Marc Morey
A fantastic white Burgundy from Jean-Marc Morey, Côte de Beaune, which exhibits a purity of rich fruit (coupled with a mouth-tingling freshness) that is rare to find.

Vacqueyras Cuvée Doucinello 2011
Vacqueyras Cuve Doucinello 2011
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.
