James Suckling awards Gruner by LAURENZ V.

90 Points

“The fresh green-apple and plum character, together with the medium to light body and lively acidity, make this a refreshing grüner veltliner that will give plenty of pleasure with salad and many moderately spicy dishes. Drink now. Screw cap.”

90 Points

“This rare, off-dry grüner veltliner has so much juicy mirabelle character and vibrant lemony acidity to balance neatly the touch of sweetness. The almost dry finish means this should be good with smoked fish and ham. Drink now. Screw cap.”

Vintage 2017

The 2017 season brought a very dry, yet cold start to the year (some might regard it as a “real winter”) with the chilly January and February oscillating between minus 10 and minus 8 degrees Celsius ( around 15°F ) transitioning into a pleasantly rain-free spring and dry summer. From mid-May to early August, we experienced unusually dry and warm conditions, coupled with short spells of sudden and heavy rainfall. This water supply was warmly welcomed, and supplied the absolute minimum that was needed to nourish the vines.

First budding was comparatively early in 2017, happening around the 16th to 17th April, and the vines were consequently affected by the widespread and disastrous spell of late frost at end of April. This was followed by a second frost wave on 6th May and 10th May.
Extensive thinning ( green harvest ) was performed during the last two weeks of July, and the latter part of of August brought us much-needed rainfall.

A dry and warm September encouraged the grapes to ripen at excellent physiological ripeness and the harvest occurred around two weeks earlier than our long-term average picking time on 25th September  and continued through until 21st October.

The typically cooling Kamptal nights help to retain the freshness and aromatic characters of the fruit, and thanks to the highly selective harvest, we were able to pick healthy and ripe grapes. Fermentation began promptly and was completed without any incidents - (approx. 17°C or 62°F). Extended maturation on the lees will result in elegant wines with longevity and fresh, lively and bright acidity. The 2017 vintage is a highly elegant, very spicy vintage with an array of fruit-driven aromas, showcasing the various terroir aspects of our beloved Kamp valley.

Laurenz V. 2015 Charming Reserve Grüner Veltliner (Kamptal)

Yeasty savor and saltiness mingle with yellow pear scents on the nose of this wine. The palate adds juicy, ripe yellow plum to the mix, expanding its flavor to full-on fruitiness, with a baseline of zest and saltiness. It's generously packed, with a clean, dry and lasting finish.

Laurenz V. 2015 Friendly Grüner Veltliner (Kamptal)

Creamy, herbal freshness reminiscent of fern and fig leaf rises from the glass in this wine. That same combination of creaminess and verve pervades the concentrated palate. It's dry, sophisticated and wonderfully compact.
