Riesling Langenloiser Urgestein 2021
Every wine producing village is unique in terms of location, geology and wine culture. The Ortswein (Village Wine) tradition is centuries old and reflects this geological, microclimatic and cultural spectrum. The historic town of Langenlois is not only the center of the Kamptal appellation, it is also our center of life. 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 of ageing on the lees, is characterized by a fine stonefruit aroma and juicy minerality, which unmistakably reflect its origin and the character of the people who live here.
["Urgestein" describes the whole family of crystalline rock soils, on which the vines are growing.]
