Over the past generation, the Jurtschitsch winery in Langenlois / Kamptal has grown into one of the most prominent top wineries in Austria. Having being run by the three brothers Edwin, Paul and Karl Jurtschitsch, the family-owned winery has now been passed on to the younger generation, to Alwin and Stefanie Jurtschitsch.

 

‘Our home mountain stems from the Proterozoic eon and is an estimated 800 million-years-old. Grüner Veltliner drives its roots into mica-schist high on the mountain slope where the vines are exposed to constant winds that provide optimal aeration. Not only does this wine remind one of the exotic, fragrant miniature oranges called kumquats, dark spicy notes and nuances of chamomile join in on the palate. It is juicy, compact and taut and impresses with vibrant acidity and a veil of minerals. The finish is long and spicy ‘
