Due to Kurt Angerer's commitment to high quality and lack of compromise, both in the vineyards as well as during vinification, the wines in the cellars of Kurt Angerer are considered some of the best in all of Kamptal. The wine-growing estate of Kurt Angerer is a family business and has tradition of 150 years. Present owner Kurt Angerer feels strongly attached to the tradition and its "terroir" which is evident in the names of his wines: Kies, Spies, Loam, Granit and Eichenstaude. But most of all, it is the mineral structure and diverse location bed rock soil, far-reaching loose soil or gravel which give reason to the successfully tasteful and unique manner of the wines.
Named for the gravel that characterizes its fruit sources, his Kies Grüner Veltliner delivers lime, grapefruit and fresh apple on the nose, and those fruits mingle lusciously on a silken palate with a rich, earthy, nutty undertone of roasted lentil. The long, juicy finish is mouthwateringly and intriguingly tinged with salt, iodine and stone. At 12.5 percent alcohol, this is the sole Angerer white of its vintage to evince a genuine, welcome sense of buoyancy. It’s also his brightest and juiciest Grüner Veltliner, reflecting a relatively early harvest that manifestly entailed no sacrifice in ripeness of flavors.
