One of the finest sites in the Kamptal, taking its name from the subsoil – Laam translates as loam in the local dialect. The deep fertile soil, in combination with the micro-climate of the south-facing slope, makes it ideal for producing expressive, multi-layered Grüners with substance and texture. The wine has ripe fruit supported by fine acidity and a creamy, dark, almost coffee-like character.
'this is a masterpiece of elegance' - James Suckling
So precise and so pristine, this glitters like a great diamond. Tremendous citrus and melon fruit, but also a whole garden of fresh herbs! At once creamy and concentrated, vibrant and delicate, this is a masterpiece of elegance, the finish sailing off gracefully into the far distance! From biodynamically grown grapes with Respekt certification. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
Quiet, nascent notes of apple and lemon. Sleek, concentrated palate with steady momentum and refined texture. Nothing jarring, merely the momentum of the incoming tide, gaining in strength and power. The alcohol is beautifully balanced, with a fine and filigreed fruitiness. Lingering saline finish. Dry and beautifully deep.
