From the winemaker:
Dense, creamy nose, ripe, some depth, very harmonious and balanced, slightly smoky spiciness, pickled oranges, dried touch. On the palate, a juicy fruit bite, grace, rich in extracts, pithy, grip, very good structure, firm, long, still takes time.
From the importer:
The Weszeli estate is situated in the Kamptal region of Austria, and their 30 hectares of Gruner Veltliner and Riesling vineyards surround the town of Langenlois. The Kamptal is a unique valley region in Austria and one that sits at an altitude of 200-300 meters. The summer days area hot, though with the warm Pannonian winds that meet the cooler Northwest winds, the nights cool down significantly, causing high diurnal fluctuations. The soil is primarily loess, gneiss, and clay, ideal for growing Gruner Veltliner and Riesling. The long growing season and sunny autumn days allow the grapes to reach full physiological maturity. The Kamptal has been long known to produce some of Austria’s finest white wines.
The Schenkenbichl vineyard. Try to say that three times as fast as you can! It is one of the warmest sites for the estate and has a combination of gneiss to the west and loess to the east, giving a great range of complexities.
