  • Laurenz und Sophie Singing Gruner 2008 as one of the top 40 festive wines:
    "So clean, so sharp, so mouth-watering, so delicious it translates its terroir with ease. Look for a creamy palate with floral citrus, crunchy fruit and honey notes. Oysters, clams, poultry -- you name it, this is a versatile wine."

            It looks lke a very good start for LAURENZ V. Gruners and it feels good to be represented by such a superb team of enthusiasts.

            Prowein - the best show ever for LAURENZ V.!

            Dieter and Lenz very charming minded - please see the colors (however, Dieter a bit timid with only the tie in purple ... ;-)
            (click on picture to enlarge) 

             

            The new vintages of SINGING and FRIENDLY brought immediate and very positive vibrations. The most common descriptions were: super juicy, perfect foodmatch, can't stop sipping, "geil"!

            Also a tunner - the SILVER BULLET with its "fer-mutation on the skins story" + "what is this with the 500 ml thing?"

            CHARMING above all of course as the grand seigneur already the 5th vintage ... (September 2010: 6th release ...)

            LAURENZ V. made it now also to the Maldives, the latest edition to the already 38 countries wine lovers (you know the thing with "sheer drinking pleasure") - please see the importers list. Our partner MMI (based in Dubai) just sent the first shipment to Male, the capitol of this legendary string of islands in the Indian Ocean!

            "Singing" Gruner for the wine by the glass enjoyment an "Charming" to fostern the quality of the image. Thank you Dieter and MMI (Oliver and Andy) for this fine effort!


            P.S.:"Très très heureux" to report that in Dubai itself Charming is featured in all restaurants also by the glass from the magnum bottle!!  

            P.P.S.: Daughter Sophie will make her debut in Dubai at the Royal Mirage "One & Only" this autumn with a Sophie dinner at "Nina's" restaurant ;-)

            Dear friends of LAURENZ V. Charming!

            The mood was very good! -> photo: René Gabriel and L(aur)enz put the final touches on the new Charming 2009. René was a supporter of this project from day one. Also Fred Loimer, Peter Schweiger and Dieter Huebler plus some old friends and customers came together in Langenlois / Kamptal on Feb. 27th to examine "Charming" 2009. It is one of these rare moments of truth – did we do it again? And it makes us always very humble as no art of wine making can overrule what mother nature gives to work with. And the secret of fine Gruner is simple: give us the perfect grape, leave it alone, don’t move it around (in the cellar) - that’s it!

            2009  was a great year for Gruner! … and already  the 6th vintage of this wine (by the way: currently flying in British Airways First Class) 30% less yield and perfect ripening conditions in the autumn in the vineyards gave us a very complex, concentrated AND elegant Gruner. Especially at LAURENZ V. we report a perfect "balance of power" between natural zip (the liveliness), high extracts for the "charming creaminess" and a never ending luscious finish.

            So stay tuned, enjoy still the now perfect drinking "Charming" 2008 as the 2009 will be released again in September – now is the time to mature in cask, bottling in June for ideal conditions when this wine will hit the market.

            Greetings from the Gruner man Laurenz V.

            Catherin Rabb featured Laurenz V und Sophie Singing Gruner Veltliner 2007 as her "Sip of the Week" in the Charlotte Observer, stating, "...it's like an elegant Riesling with crisp acids and citrus flavors and aromas, but with an interesting peppery and herbal undertone. Laurenz Moser has a reputation for excellent wine, and this was no exception."
