Laurenz und Sophie – SINGING “GRUNER”
(don’t even bother to pronounce Grüner Veltliner)
 
- The story of this great grape from Austria is about a great wine growing family –
THE MOSERS
 
- It started in 1124 in a little village by the Danube and culminated the first time with Prof. Dr. Lorenz Moser III - He single headedly created the modern vineyard management in the 1950’s. Wherever you see trellising in vineyards globally, it was the grandfather of present Laurenz Maria Moser V. - The producer of “Singing”. To complete the story, Laurenz V.’s daughter Sophie represents the next generation already …
 

- AUSTRIA, in the heart of Europe, produces 1% of the world’s wine, handcrafted and environmentally friendly
 
- SINGING “GRUNER” is the chameleon of wine – whatever you want to pair with works beautifully
 
-“SINGING” is very refreshing marriage of grapes from the Kremstal and Weinviertel
– think of the floral perfume of a German Riesling, the refreshing zip of a Loire
Sauvignon Blanc and the lusciousness of a Northern Italian Pinot Grigio, all in great harmony .
- Why we call it “SINGING”? … guess you have to try it …

Charming Grüner Veltliner 2007
Origin
The grapes for this very charming wine are grown in the Kamptal region of Austria. Here, the Grüner
Veltliner ripens in granite, gneiss, mica-slate as well as loess soils. And from the neighbouring region
to the north, the rugged Waldviertel, blows cool air that substantially lowers night temperatures in the
Kamptal; this in turn slows up the ripening process of the grapes. But these conditions are exactly why
the wines from this region taste so fresh and fruity. The most beautiful kind of “Cool Climate Viticulture”. 

Vinification

The harvest took place by the end of October 2007. Once the grapes were picked by hand, they were
brought immediately to the Loimer estate winery in small boxes; these were used in order to prevent
any possible damages to the grapes. They were then pressed very carefully. Temperature-controlled
fermentation followed; this was carried out exclusively in steel tanks so that freshness and fruitiness
could be retained. First bottling of “Charming Grüner Veltliner 2007” was at the end of July 2008. 

Vintage 2007

By August, it seemed that we would have the earliest harvest for decades. However, heavy rain early
September changed this, and the result was a normal year‘s harvest for Gruner Veltliner. Up until the
harvest we had dry weather conditions and plenty of sunshine, with warm days and cool nights in
September and October. We hand-picked the Gruner grapes between the 18th and 29th October 07.
 
Tasting Notes
The wine is a clear bright lemon color.  Complex integrated nose, spicy with hits of apples. Medium body, it is delicate almost satiny, a rich, harmonious and balanced wine with a core of delicate mouth coating fruit with a hint of ginger and spice on a lingering finish. JKW05/12
Analysis
Alcohol: 13,0% vol
Acidity: 5,3 g/l
Residual Sugar: 3,0 g/l – dry

Charming Grüner Veltliner 2009

Origin
The grapes for this very charming wine are grown in the Kamptal region of Austria.
Here, the Grüner Veltliner ripens in granite, gneiss, mica slate as well as loess soils.
From the neighbouring region to the north, the rugged Waldviertel, blows cool air
that substantially lowers night temperatures in the Kamptal; this in turn slows up
the ripening process of the grapes. But these conditions are exactly why the wines
from this region taste so fresh and fruity. The most beautiful kind of “Cool Climate
Viticulture”.

Vinification
The harvest started in mid October 2009. Once the grapes were picked by hand,
they were brought immediately to the winery in small boxes in order to prevent any
possible damages to the grapes. They were then pressed very carefully. Temperaturecontrolled
fermentation followed; this was carried out exclusively in steel tanks so
that freshness and fruitiness could be retained. Charming 2009 then rested on the
fine lees until 2 weeks before bottling which took place in mid September 2010.

Vintage 2009
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.

Tasting Notes
The wine is a clear bright lemon color. Fresh forward nose, it reveals hints of apples, citrus along with subtle spice accents. Medium body, it is soft satiny and harmonious a balanced wine with a core of delicate mouth coating fruit with a hint of pepper and spice echoing on a lingering finish. JKW05/12
