Ried Lamm 1ÖTW

One of the finest sites in the Kamptal, Lamm takes its name not from young sheep grazing, but rather from the subsoil: Laam is a local dialect word meaning loam. This loam together with the loess in this site on the southeastern flank of the Heiligenstein makes for a deep and fertile soil, and the site’s distinctive character is enhanced by the microclimate of the south-facing slope. Together these factors render the vineyard ideal for producing extremely expressive multi-layered Grüner Veltliners, with plenty of substance and texture.
