Notes from the producer:
"All the wines come from estate vineyards in the Kamptal, however, the Arndorfers have long since stopped caring if the wines are deemed “typical” enough to carry the appellation. The Kamptal is a cool climate region, named after the Kamp river, which flows through the area before emptying into the Danube. Very high diurnal shifts create thick skins in fruit here, which leading to powerful aromas and strong acidity. Microclimates, however, change considerably from hillside to hillside, vineyard to vineyard; altitudes range from 200 to nearly 500m. Small valleys between the hills work like channels, where cold winds from the northern regions chill the vineyards during the night. The Arndorfer winery and vineyards are located in and around the village of Strass im Strassertale–an area with a special microclimate, the first south-facing slopes near the Danube flats. This whole area is defined by the unique combination of the very old mother rock of the Bohemian Massif and the particular, continental influence of the Pannonian climate."
