Laurenz V Charming Gruner Veltliner Kamptal Austria Screwcap 2008
The grapes for this very charming wine are grown in the Kamptal region of Austria. Here, the Grüner Veltliner ripens in granite, gneiss, mica-slate as well as loess soils. Grüner Veltliner is Austria's showpiece grape. It yields concentrated, harmonious wines rich in finesse and with a long life potential. Veltliner wines are reliable in their development. They bring pure enjoyment in their youth, and guarantee utmost drinking pleasure in maturity. This wine calls up the strengths of its origins and expresses them clearly and distinctly. Its refreshing aroma seems almost light and airy, but in fact exudes depth and richness in finesse. On the palate are attributes of a wonderfully developed Veltliner: spicy, harmonious and structured - elegant, and with refreshing green notes (not overripe!) and a range of subtle nuances. A fresh and animated wine right through to the charming, delicately sweet finish. This wine is not only charming, but is also certainly seductive.

Editorial Reviews for Laurenz V Charming Gruner Veltliner Kamptal Austria Screwcap
Dusty, mineral, lightly aromatic, fresh, apple peel and dried tangerine zest – lots of trapped co2, disconcertingly so, for most people, especially in light of the bottle being labeled still white wine – nice fruit, there’s a impression of sweetness in the flavor profile, all peachy and apricotty, moderately long, lightly sticky finish with a nice floral note. 87pts
