Kittmannsberg is one of the highest elevated vineyard sites in the Kamptal, located just west of Langenlois. It is shaped like a wide bowl and opens towards the southeast into the Langenlois basin. It reaches about 345 m above sea level at its highest point, 280 m at its lowest point. The characteristic basin-shaped topographic depression is responsible for its autonomous microclimate and, together with the height enables long ripening periods under cool conditions. The soils consist of deep and loamy silt with a high content of clay.

The vines dig their roots into loess-loam with a high content of clay. It can be very chalky in some places.

Review:
Ripe and creamy, but with a ton of mirabelles and pears, plus delicate herbal notes. This is a distinctive and attractive gruner veltliner that’s got spot-on balance at the silky finish. Drink or hold.
