Gruner Veltliner Langenlois, Gobelsburg
Langenlois is the warmest area in the Kamptal and the loess soils here produce a very distinctive wine. Young vines (under 35 years) and fermented and aged in Austrian oak, this is classic mid-weight GV with real flavor of place. These wines are an overview of the types of wines produced in a particular area, while the single vineyard wines are a study in individuality.
I was wary. Yet another wine? Sure, I understand this is a “village” wine to lead in to the Crus coming up, and I appreciate how
Michi didn’t want to jump from the negoç wine directly to Steinsetz. But whew, we got a lot of skus as it is…..
The first sip demolished my concerns. It contains young-vines juice from the sites Redling, Thal, Lamm (!), Renner and Grub,
which makes those wines even better. It shows superb focus in an herbal direction; hyssop and spearmint, leading into a spicy
finish that leaves a tingle behind. Mid-palate is tense and vigorous, with “physio” sweetness. – Terry Thiese
