Hiedler 'Kittmannsberg' Erste Lage Grüner Veltliner, Kamptal, Austria 2021

Farming: Organic

Winemaker: Ludwig Hiedler (with sons Ludwig Jr. and Dietmar)

Variety: Grüner Veltliner 

Terroir: Kittmannsberg is one of the highest elevated vineyard sites in the Kamptal, located just west of Langenlois. It is shaped like a wide bowl and opens towards the southeast into the Langenlois basin. It reaches about 345 m above sea level at its highest point, 280 m at its lowest point. The characteristic basin-shaped topographic depression is responsible for its autonomous microclimate and, together with the height enables long ripening periods under cool conditions. The soils consist of deep and loamy silt with a high content of clay.

Vinification: Selective harvest by hand in the first half of September. Destemmed and crushed. Gently pressed off with low pressure. Without sulphurization of the juice. Temperature-regulated fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Partial spontaneous malolactic fermentation. Matured for several months on the lees.
