Grüner Veltliner Ried Kittmannsberg 2022
The Kittmannsberg is located on a distinct high plateau that ascends west of Langenlois, reaching an elevation of up to 365 meters above sea level, thus establishing itself as one of the highest vineyard sites in the Kamptal region. Within its characteristic bowl-shaped topographical depression, it generates a unique microclimate that encourages prolonged ripening periods. The soil possesses a particularly fine mineral structure and consists of calcareous clays and loess-loam, remnants of a former shallow sea. Under these conditions, our Veltliner develops distinctive attributes, including a yellow fruit expression, subtle herbal spiciness, and a smooth silky texture.
[1.ÖTW = Classified Vineyard, Erste Lage (Premier Cru)] [Ried = Austrian Term for single vineyard, same meaning as “Lage”]
