Hirsch Ried Kammern Gaisberg 1 ÖTW Kamptal DAC Grüner Veltliner

The slopes of this wine-growing area vineyard extend eastwards from the Heiligenstein mountain; they have a clear southerly aspect and an average gradient of about 11%. The low-lying areas have highly calcareous chernozem soils with fragments of crystalline rocks, derived from the underlying loess which in turn overlies gravel beds. The upper parts of the slopes consist predominantly of gneiss with amphibolite lenses, and occasional remnants of loess. The overlying soil is calcareous brown earth with varying proportions of coarse material. Where the brown earth rests directly on gneiss it is generally non-calcareous but it may be calcareous where it has developed on amphibolite.

Harvest end of September / beginning of October. Whole bunch pressing, fermen- tation without temperature control and using only natural yeasts with maturation occurring in both stainless steel tanks and large oak barrels. The wine rested on the lees until middle of June prior to bottling at the beginning of August and release in September 2018.
