Kammern Grüner Veltliner 2022
Kamptal DAC, BIO-Respekt
Quite spicy on the nose, aromas of fennel and green peppers, hints of roasted bread, discreetly creamy, balanced; pleasantly juicy on the palate with hints of pome fruit, at the same time taut and structured, hints of grapefruit from the mid-palate on, firm on the finish.
12.5 % alc/vol dry, stainless steel maturation
Biodynamic viticulture according to RESPEKT – AT-BIO-402
The loess and loamy soils that lie on the outer rims of Kammern, the traditional wine-growing village, are among the most fascinating terroirs in Kamptal. They gives our wines great aromatics with spicy and supple taste. Great food wines!
THE 2022 VINTAGE
The 2022 weather pattern was challenging for a variety of reasons.
In the spring, cool and warm phases alternated, with very dry conditions overall. Bud break came comparatively late in this year, namely not until the end of April. However, in view of the threat of late frosts, which usually can occur until mid-May, this was quite a positive development.
Due to the warm weather, flowering happened relatively early. Shortly there after the rainfalls we had eagerly awaited finally came. As this was around the time of flowering which is a very sensitive stage of the vine in the course of the vegetation process, there was considerable pressure from fungal diseases. However, things changed dramatically and July and August were marked by drought which the vines had to endure for many weeks.
The harvest required great precision in regards to selection but was nonetheless quite calm overall.
Due to the reduction in yields for Grüner Veltliner and the low fruit set for Riesling, we brought in a small harvest in terms of volume.
In general the Grüner Veltliners show fantastic spiciness and remarkable balance while the Rieslings impress with refined acidity and mouth-filling juiciness.
