"Complex, serious flavour-packed wine with enough acidity to keep it food friendly." Ernie Whalley "Nectarine on the nose leads to a creamy palate with a zesty finish. a terrific mix of richness and freshness." Martin Moran. The Sunday Times 06.04.2014 18/20

The Jurtschitsch family has owned this magnificent winery since 1868.Today, it is run by three brothers, Edwin, Paul and Karl producing a large range of Langenlois and Kamptal wines, all of impeccable quality. The majority of the 60 hectares of vineyards are based in Langenlois, a naturally protected basin, where high temperatures are common during the day due to extensive sun exposure, while cool air flows in from the bordering, higher situated Waldviertal region in the evening. This temperature variation is the secret to the wonderfully distinctive flavour development noted primarily with Grüner Veltliner and Riesling from this region. In the 1970’s, the brothers began using compost and green fertilisation to nourish thier soils and since 2006, the vineyard management has been converted to controlled organic methods.

Awesome Gruner Veltliner
Possibly one of the best Gruner's I've ever tasted..All the typical notes of pink grapefruit and hint of lycee, with a lovely white pepper spice in the back ground. I'll be back for more.
