Christoph Edelbauer has been making wine in the famous Langenlois region of Kamptal since 2003. The hot summer temperatures are tempered here by the influence of the Danube River and the nearby forests. The long growing season and cool nights enable the grapes to reach full ripeness at the same time as preserving delicate aromas and freshness in the fruit. The soils around the hilly landscape of the Langenlois are mainly formed of rock known as Gfoehler gneiss. This is covered by a layer of chalky brown earth, and the more fertile loess and loam soils. The combination of climate and soil types create the perfect terroir for producing distinctive white wines, and the Kamptal is particularly lauded for its expressions of Grüner Veltliner and Riesling.

This one is classic Gruner; steely and precise. Bone dry white grapefruit with that distinctive ground white pepper aroma and maybe a hint of something like juniper too.
