Cellaring Potential

The beauty of this wine is its balance and fine texture. Enjoy within 24-36 months.

Vintage Condition

Dry and warm days in spring 2009 effected an early flowering at the beginning of June. After some rainfalls in mid June, a sunny and warm July encouraged good and healthy vegetation growth. Heavy rain in early August caused increased decay what made us sort and cut off a part of the grapes. The grapes matured to their physiological ripeness 2 weeks earlier than in an average season and the harvest started on October 10. Warm days and cool nights drew out the varietal phenol aromatic characters of Gruner, making 2009 a high quality, strong and fruity wine with a very well balanced zip. The grapes were gently pressed and the temperature controlled fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks, in order to preserve freshness and fruit driven aromas. Charming then rested on the fine lees in stainless steel tanks for 6 months prior to its release in October 2010.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Laurenz V stands for five generations of the Moser wine dynasty. And, with the daughter of Laurenz Maria Moser - Sophie, born in 1991 - the 6th generation of the family is well on its way.

The grapes for this Veltliner are grown in the Kamptal region of Austria. Here the Gruner Veltliner ripens in granite, gneiss, mica-slate as well as loess soils. The cold air from the north, the rugged Waldviertel, lowers night temperatures substantially, slowing up the ripening of the grapes. These regionalattributes however are the reason why the Gruner Veltliner from Kamptal is particularly intense, structured and balanced.
