Wine maker notes
The rules for Kamptal DAC state that Gruner Veltliner must be produced in a fresh style without botrytis or wood. Fred places this wine in his “klassik” range and is intended to be a transparent snapshot of the varietal, the vintage and most importantly the Kamptal. The grapes for this wine come from old vineyards around Langenlois and nearby areas such as Zobing, Gobelsburg, Schiltern and Mollands. Both young and old vines for the wine grow mainly in loess and weathered gneiss soils. The gapes are selectively picked by hand in October. Then, following a short maceration time, they underwent fermentation in steel tanks - partly spontaneous, partly controlled. At the end of January, the freshly fermented wine was drawn off and then further matured on the lees until bottling.

Technical notes
100% Gruner Veltliner. Grapes sourced from old vine growth around Langenlois and nearby Zöbing, Gobels-burg, Schiltern and Mollands. Planted mainly in loess (80%) with the rest (20%) in weathered gneiss soils. Hand harvested and sorted. Brief maceration, fining, and fermented in steel tanks at 19-21 degrees celsuis. Racked and aged on remaining lees for 1-2 months.

Food pairing
Makes a wonderful aperitif and goes well with light starters like salads, cold meats, cheeses and vegetables.
