Steinschaden Gruner Veltliner Kamptal DAC 2019
"Climate and soil conditions are the predominant factors that determine the character of this wine. The taste of Kamptal comes most clearly into its own in the two leading varieties: GrÃ¼ner Veltliner and Riesling. Therefore, only accurately defined wines of these two varieties may use the state-controlled designation of origin Kamptal DAC (DAC = Districtus Austria Controllatus.)
DAC wines appear fresh and dry and show personality; the pleasant lightness is yet combined with a compact structure. With their powerful character and depth, the great, opulent Reserve wines expressively mirror their origin in famous single vineyards. Not for nothing, many of the single vineyards in the Kamptal Valley rank among the most renowned proveniences of Austrian viticulture."
From the exceptional 2019 vintage, exactly the kind of wines Austrians like to drink: good water supply in August was followed by perfect conditions in fall, leading to wines with good acidity, high extract and moderate alcohol levels, wines that come across as juicy and well balanced.
