The St Laurent grapes come from one of Alwin’s neighbouring vineyards, a tiny site that was left abandoned and untouched for 2 years. Alwin named the wine ‘Jungle’ after the wild appearance of this vineyard. The vines here are 50 years old and yield delicate, expressive fruit. Only one 1000 litre barrel was produced of this wine – showing how small the vineyard is. The grapes were whole bunch fermented in open top fermenters and aged for a year in used oak before being bottled without filtration.
Over the past generation, the Jurtschitsch winery in Langenlois / Kamptal has grown into one of the most prominent top wineries in Austria. Having being run by the three brothers Edwin, Paul and Karl Jurtschitsch, the family-owned winery has now been passed on to the younger generation, to Alwin Jurtschitsch and his partner Stefanie Hasselbach.
This family business succession has been prepared thoroughly. The couple travelled around the world, gathering experience in New Zealand and Australia. Working as interns in famed wineries in France, they got to know the French school of the Old Wine World. "It was a wonderful time and we learnt a lot. Now, we can put the ideas and the experience we have gained into practice back home in the Kamptal", explains Alwin Jurtschitsch.
