Laurenz V 'Singing' Grüner Veltliner 2018 (Kremstal, Austria) "...mandarin, pear, citrus..."
The grapes for this Veltliner are grown mainly in loess and gravel soils of the Kremstal region. Their distinctive fruitiness is owed to marked alternating temperatures of the north-south positioned Kremstal: warm air rising from the Danube valley is met by cool air flowing down from the nearby Waldviertel region and along the Krems river. While this warmth influences ripeness and concentrated aromas, the coolness lends strongly to the fresh fruitiness.
"A hint of Mandarin orange mixes in with the green pear notes on the nose. The juicy palate swishes with green pear and ripe lemon to a fresh, moreish and refreshing finish" - 89 Points, Wine Enthusiast
"A very attractive fruit bouquet yields apple, peach and citrus aromas along with a typical Veltliner spiciness and a touch of white pepper. The soft and juicy palate is supported by fine acidity. It sings on the palate!"
