Sax

A traditional winery in the Kamptal

The beginnings of Sax family's winemaking activity go back to the year 1660. Back then, wineries were run as a mixed farm. The average vineyard area was 1.5 hectares per farm. Up until the mid-1950s, vineyards in and around the Lengenfeld community in the west of Langenlois were cultivated by their ancestors.

Sax, Gruner Veltliner, Zwillingslauser, Kamptal, 2020

The Sax boys name one of their Kamptal Gruner Veltliners Zwillingslauser, which loosely translates as the naughty twins. We shipped it for the first time last summer; and now it's been praised twice in the press in the last month.

"Full screwcapped bottle 1,257 g.The Sax boys name one of their Kamptal Grüner Veltliners Zwillingslauser, which loosely translates as the naughty twins. It's based on fruit from Ried Kittmannsberg, a warm south-facing site with granitic soils incorporating feldspar, quartz and mica.
Quite memorable names on this wine! (Useful for Scrabble?) Slightly timid nose at this point. But it's very recognisably varietal on the palate with cornichons and spritz and bit of herbiness. Finishes attractively dry and racy. I should think the nose will develop over the next year. Very promising." 16+ Drink 2021-2023, Jancis Robinson, October 2021

Not from a named vineyard - Zwillingslauser translates as "naughty twins" - but based on fruit from Ried Kittmannsberg, a warm south-facing site with granitic soils incorporating feldspar, quartz and mica. These retain heat well, which suits Gruner. Lovely scent of ripe pears - which fits with a fully ripe palate of pears, sherbet lemons and hints of spice. Thrillingly fine acidity. A winner. Now-2024

More delicious wine from Stone Vine and Sun. Highly recommended.
