Among the greatest estates in Austria and arguably among the very greatest white-wine producers in the entire world. Quality has gradually increased even further, under the watchful eye of Andreas Wickhoff, MW, who took the helm from Willi Bründlmayer in 2014. The entry level wines are the purest examples of straight-up Kamptal Riesling and Grüner you could hope for. But the fancier bottlings are truly next level transmitting the multi-faced soil, aspect, elevation and micro climates throughout the Kamptal. The estate is always pushing the boundaries of what one could expect from their vines and with great effect.
What importer Skurnik Wines has to say about this wine...
The Lamm vineyard has a soil of chalky clay and loess on siltstone. It is a south facing slope bordering the east of the “Heiligenstein” – one of the warmest sites in our wine growing area.Grapes from this site reach a high degree of ripeness and concentration, which bring a generous expression more generally associated with Burgundy varieties. While “Lamm” is the quintessence of a monumental Grüner Veltliner, it abandons the lightness and prickle that Grüner Veltliner usually stands for.Region: Kamptal DAC ReserveVineyard: Kammerner LammSoil: Chalky clay, loess, siltstoneAltitude: 215 – 285m, South facingElevage: Fermented in 300L Austrian oak and some small new acacia barrels, aged in 2500L Oak and acacia
