Laurenz V. Singing Grüner Veltliner

Niederösterreich

Tasting Notes

A very attractive fruit bouquet yields apple, peach and citrus aromas along with a typical Veltliner spiciness and a touch of white pepper. The soft and juicy palate is supported by fine acidity. It sings on the palate!

The 2015 vintage has given us great wines with both an outstanding quality and satisfactory volumes. A beautiful spring led to perfect flowering and growth during the early summer months. July brought extremely warm days and nights, with little rainfall, and we had to wait until mid-August before the much-needed rain came to nourish the vines. A final heat wave came towards the end of August, coupled with cool nights to draw out the aromatic character in the grapes, guaranteed perfect physiological ripeness for the harvest. This enabled us to produce full-bodied wines with complexity, that display refreshing acidity and vibrant fruit characters. The 2015 vintage offers wines that possess a high quality with richness, elegance and fruit-characters, over balanced crispness and a lingering aftertaste.

The grapes for this Veltliner are grown mainly in loess and gravel soils of the Kremstalregion. Their distinctive fruitiness is owed to marked alternating temperatures of the north-south positioned Kremstal: warm air rising from the Danube valley is met by cool air flowing down from the nearby Waldviertel region and along the Krems river. While this warmth influences ripeness and concentrated aromas, the coolness lends strongly to the fresh fruitiness. Thanks to the adding of some Veltliner grapes from the Weinviertel, the wine takes on a light fizzy character.

The great 2014 vintage has given us exceptional wines with outstanding quality. Due to the difficult weather conditions during summer and autumn, we undertook a rigorous selection in the vineyards to achieve 100% healthy and ripened grapes for wonderful wines that are rich in flavour. The vintage displays clean, fruit-driven wines with lively acidity; perfect for fresh Grüner Veltliner wines with vibrant fruit characters and vital freshness.

The great 2013 vintage has given us exceptional wines with outstanding quality: The humidity of winter and spring was ideal for the vines. During summer, we experienced a heat-wave with an all-time temperature record in Austria which caused a later harvest than in previous years. Hence it was already a little cooler during harvest than usual. In 2013, we obtained 100% healthy grapes for wonderful wines rich of flavours. The vintage presents clean, fruity wines with fine acidity – great preconditions for full-bodied Grüner Veltliners with wonderful ripe fruit characters and more extract than the year before.

The great 2012 vintage has given us exceptional wines with outstanding quality. The ripening period and harvest was a sun-blessed, warm Indian summer, that remained continuously dry. This enabled our Grüner Veltliner grapes to reach optimal physiological maturity. The period between August and October was virtually rainfree, and dry weather during the harvest resulted in very healthy grapes. Although some evenings and nights were not really cool enough for particular fruit aromas to develop, our skilled winemakers were able to bring out the wonderful signature ripe fruit characters and lean structure of Grüner Veltliner during the fermentation.
